'Star' Tessellations - Type 2
(click on the image for a larger version)
The above edge network is formed by faceting the cells of a 8, 8, 4 tessellation, replacing each octagon with an octagram where the vertices of the octagram are superimposed on the vertices of the original octagon. A copy of this network superimposed on the original 8, 8, 4 tessellation is linked here.
Three tessellations can be formed using this network:
^{8}/_{3}, 4, ^{8}/_{3}, Inf. |
^{8}/_{3}, 8, ^{8}/_{5},
^{8}/_{7} |
8, ^{4}/_{3}, 8, Inf. |
In each case, clicking onto the vertex figures above will show the sample cell superimposed on the above network.
