Acronym gidisdrid Name great disnub dirhombicosidodecahedron,Skilling's figure ` ©` Circumradius 1/sqrt(2) = 0.707107 Vertex figure [5/4,4,3,3,3,4,5/3,4,3/2,3/2,3/2,4] (type A) or[5/2,3,4,3,4,3,5/3,3/2,4,3/2,4,3/2] (type B) Externallinks

This figure can be obtained as the blend of the great dirhombicosidodecahedron (Miller's monster, gidrid) and the compound dasi of 20 octahedra (oct).

Half the edges of that figure are tetradic instead of dyadic (type C), but can be re-interpreted as being a pair of coincident dyadic edges (types A and B). As such gidisdrid is a exotic polyhedron.
