The Dodecahedron vertex truncation passes through one Archimedean solid and ends at the Archimedean Icosidodecahedron.
The Dodecahedron snub truncation ends at a fascinating Archimedean solid. Observe that they exist as left-handed and right-handed mirror images.
Dodecahedron can be constructed by cutting the faces of a cube and extend them in a certain way until all edges are of equal length.
The Platonic Dodecahedron is between the cube and the Rhombic Dodecahedron.
