The Cuboctahedron


Cuboctahedron
  • Uniform Polyhedron: U7
  • Archimedean Solid: A1
  • Vertices: 12
  • Edges: 24
  • Faces: 14
  • Wythoff symbol: 2|3 4
  • Symmetry Group: octahedral
  • Vertex Configuration: {3, 4, 3, 4}
  • Dual: rhombic dodecahedron
  • V: s3 * 5/3 * √2
  • A: s2 * (6 + 2 * √3)
  • rinner: s * 3/4
  • router: s


s = , V = , A = , rinner = , router = , ravg =

Preparing the Cuboctahedron

Cuboctahedron L0/0V (original)
Cuboctahedron L1/1V flat (only triangles & flat)
Cuboctahedron L1/1V (only triangles & normalized)
The 6 squares are centerpoint triangulated for further processing.
