|Set of gyroelongated cupolae|
Example pentagonal form
|Symmetry group||Cnv, [n], (*nn)|
|Rotational group||Cn, [n]+, (nn)|
There are three gyroelongated cupolae that are Johnson solids made from regular triangles and square, and pentagons. Higher forms can be constructed with isosceles triangles. Adjoining a triangular prism to a square antiprism also generates a polyhedron, but has adjacent parallel faces, so is not a Johnson solid. The hexagonal form can be constructed from regular polygons, but the cupola faces are all in the same plane. Topologically other forms can be constructed without regular faces.
|gyroelongated triangular prism||2+8 triangles, 2+1 square|
|gyroelongated triangular cupola (J22)||9+1 triangles, 3 squares, 1 hexagon|
|gyroelongated square cupola (J23)||12 triangles, 4+1 squares, 1 octagon|
|gyroelongated pentagonal cupola (J24)||15 triangles, 5 squares, 1 pentagon, 1 decagon|
|gyroelongated hexagonal cupola||18 triangles, 6 squares, 1 hexagon, 1 dodecagon|
