In geometry, the truncated dodecahedron is an Archimedean solid. It has 12 regular decagonal faces, 20 regular triangular faces, 60 vertices and 90 edges.
This polyhedron can be formed from a regular dodecahedron by truncating (cutting off) the corners so the pentagon faces become decagons and the corners become triangles.
It is used in the cell-transitive hyperbolic space-filling tessellation, the bitruncated icosahedral honeycomb.
The area A and the volume V of a truncated dodecahedron of edge length a are:
Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of a truncated dodecahedron with edge length 2φ − 2, centered at the origin,^{[1]} are all even permutations of:
where φ = 1 + √5/2 is the golden ratio.
The truncated dodecahedron has five special orthogonal projections, centered: on a vertex, on two types of edges, and two types of faces. The last two correspond to the A_{2} and H_{2} Coxeter planes.

The truncated dodecahedron can also be represented as a spherical tiling, and projected onto the plane via a stereographic projection. This projection is conformal, preserving angles but not areas or lengths. Straight lines on the sphere are projected as circular arcs on the plane.
Schlegel diagrams are similar, with a perspective projection and straight edges.
