Poincaré Dodecahedron principle

Poincaré Dodecahedron principle from Renate Quehenberger on Vimeo.

This example shows the principle of the Poincaré Dodecahedron applied on the 2 epitahedra filling the dodecahedron performing counter-rotation in 10 steps instead of the 2D pentagon counter-rotation suggested by Henri Poincaré (1904) .

Poincaré Epita-Dodecahedron

Poincaré Epita_Dodecahedron mov12 from Renate Quehenberger on Vimeo.

This visualization demonstrates the 12 steps of counter-rotating pentagons in the dodecahedron based upon Henri Poincaré’s description (1904).
The pattern evolves from the 12 epitahedra,- found by R. Quehenberger (2006) – filling the dodecahedron with intersecting apexes.
