The truncated icosahedron is one of the thirteen Archimedean solids.
The truncated icosahedron has 60 vertices, 32 faces and 90 edges. It is generated by truncating the vertices of a icosahedron at 1/3 edge-length. Here the distance from vertex to center point is scaled to 1.
The coordinates of the truncated icosahedron where computed with polymake.
The planes with normals showing to the icosahedron vertices with distance
and the planes with normals showing to the dodecahedron with distance
to the center point where intersected, the 60 intersection points are the vertices of the
