This one can be obtained by chopping off the 48 vertices of an ex, which correspond to 2 vertexinscribed fico. In fact 48 ikepy are to be cut off. But in contrast to sadi those ikepy would intersect here, resulting in teddi cells instead. – Bidex likewise can be obtained from sadi by chopping off the 24 vertices of a further vertexinscribed fico.
The bidex vertex figure is a faceting of ike, having 4 (x,f,f)triangles and 2 (x,x,x,f)trapezia. Btw., that vertex figure is a selfdual chiral polyhedron, in fact the dual is nothing but a rotated copy, i.e. dualization even respects its handedness!
Bidex has swirlprismatic symmetry. In fact, it divides into 8 rings of 6 teddies each. Therefore the edges of each teddi itself divide correspondingly into 2 classes in a chiral way!
As abstract polytope bidex is isomorph to birgax, thereby replacing pentagons by pentagrams, resp. replacing teddi by targi.
