Cubitruncated Cuboctahedron


The cubitruncated cuboctahedron (called the cubotruncated cuboctahedron by Wenninger 1971, p. 121) is the uniform polyhedron with Maeder index 16 (Maeder 1997), Wenninger index 79 (Wenninger 1989), Coxeter index 52 (Coxeter et al. 1954), and Har'El index 21 (Har'El 1993). It has Wythoff symbol 34/34| and its faces are 8{6}+6{8}+6{8/3}. It is a faceted octahedron.

The cubitruncated cuboctahedron is implemented in the Wolfram Language as UniformPolyhedron["CubitruncatedCuboctahedron"]. Precomputed properties are implemented in the Wolfram Language as PolyhedronData["CubitruncatedCuboctahedron", prop].


Its skeleton is the cubitruncated cuboctahedral graph, illustrated above in a number of embeddings.
