A rhombic dodecahedron (RD) is placed at each of the 60 vertices of a small rhombicosidodecahedron. Each RD is connected to four others along edges. In this Demonstration the cluster of 60 RDs is divided into two congruent parts that can be separated from each other. The RDs can also be moved in radially. When moved inward, the RD compounds can take the shape of a rhombic enneacontahedron as well as the compound of five RDs.
