"Hedron" generating a dodecadodecahedron
HEDRON can generate a great many polyhedra, including all the Uniform Polyhedra and Johnson Solids as well as many many others.
HEDRON takes as its input the net of the required polyhedron and uses this to generate a number of VRML files of the finished model. (VRML viewers are freely available).
Examples of HEDRON input and output for the dodecadodecahedron (as shown above) are here: Net, Solid model, Framework, Switchable, Animated, Molecular. HEDRON can also generate OFF files.
If you do not currently have a VRML viewer, a screenshot from the Cosmo viewer of a HEDRON switchable file is shown below.
