How to draw snub dodecahedron using just pencil, compass and ruler?

I already know how to draw dodecahedron, icosahedron, cube, etc.

I want to draw it even if it is very advanced because I have no limits with drawing, I can draw anything. But how can I draw it?

    I removed your comment saying you don't want downvotes: that is completely up to other users. About your question: draw it how? Using linear perspective? In oblique projection? – Joachim Jan 12 at 22:12
  • @Joachim Like dodecahedron here: dearingdraws.com/how-to-draw-dodecahedron-platonic-solids. – User123 Jan 13 at 18:19

    "I can draw anything." than it sounds like you already know how to draw it so go do it. Snark aside not all shapes can be drawn using a compass and ruler. Check the wiki on that. I am voting to close because this is requesting a tutorial, and has more to do with higher mathematics than it does with crafting. – rebusB Jan 14 at 23:05
  • @rebusB Agreed. With both points. The missing step here - based on the linked video - seems to be figuring out how that method can be applied to other solids. And looking at it I'm not even sure if there is a logic to it. – Joachim Jan 15 at 10:06
  • @rebusB I have written then that "I can draw anything. But how can I do it?". I have meant here that I am skilful with the compass and the ruler, but I don't know the instructions on drawing it. – User123 Jan 15 at 17:28
