Hendecahedron

A hendecahedron (or undecahedron) is a polyhedron with 11 faces. There are numerous topologically distinct forms of a hendecahedron, for example the decagonal pyramid, and enneagonal prism.

Three forms are Johnson solids: augmented hexagonal prism, biaugmented triangular prism, and elongated pentagonal pyramid.

Two classes, the bisymmetric and the sphenoid hendecahedra, are space-filling.[1]

Convex[edit]

There are 440,564 topologically distinct convex hendecahedra, excluding mirror images, having at least 8 vertices.[2] (Two polyhedra are "topologically distinct" if they have intrinsically different arrangements of faces and vertices, such that it is impossible to distort one into the other simply by changing the lengths of edges or the angles between edges or faces.)
