'Star' Tessellations - Type 3
(click on the image for a larger version)
The above edge network is formed in a similar fashion to the Type 2 network. In this case the faceting is of the cells of a 12, 12, 3 tessellation, replacing each dodecagon with a dodecagram (a 12/5-gon) where the vertices of the dodecagram are superimposed on the vertices of the original dodecagon. A copy of this network superimposed on the original 12, 12, 3 tessellation is linked here.
Three tessellations can be formed using this network:
12/5, 6, 12/5, Inf.
12/5, 12, 12/7,
12, 6/5, 12, Inf.
In each case, clicking onto the vertex figures above will show the sample cell superimposed on the above network.
