Remove one zone (consisting of ten rhombi) from the rhombic triacontahedron (RT). Move one of the remaining two caps to the other to form a rhombic icosahedron. You can control the opacity of the various parts. The relationship to the cube is also shown. The rhombic icosahedron is a polar zonohedron.
