A Polyhedron Featuring Kites and Regular Dodecagons

A Polyhedron Featuring Kites and Regular Dodecagons

The dodecagons are in the same planes as a cube’s faces, so there are six of them. Also, this could be constructed via an unusual truncation of the cube, using three different truncation-planes at each vertex. This polyhedron has thirty faces: the six dodecagons, and twenty-four kites (in eight sets of three).
