COMMENTS

Dodecahedra and icosahedra with integer coordinates cannot be formed in Euclidean space (of any dimension) because pentagons with integer coordinates cannot be formed in Euclidean space, and both polyhedra contain a subset of vertices that form a pentagon. Therefore, this sequence counts the regular tetrahedra, cubes, and octahedra in the bounded cubic lattice.
