A Dissection of the Expanded Rhombic Dodecahedron

The expanded rhombic dodecahedron (above) can be dissected into constituent parts of

A central rhombic dodecahedron surrounded by:

Coloured by face type Coloured by cell

The two images above link to models of the dissection, coloured (i) by face type and (ii) by cell.

This dissection relates to an interesting toroid which can be formed by the removal of the rhombic prisms and the central rhombic dodecahedronSee here for more information.
