Zonohedron Based On the Edges and Vertices of a Great Rhombcuboctahedron

Zonohedron Based On the Edges and Vertices of a Great Rhombcuboctahedron

This polyhedral monster has 578 faces of 26 types. In the image above, hexagons of any type are red, rhombi of any type (including squares) are yellow, and the blue faces are octagons. If each face-type is given a different color, though, this zonohedron looks like this:

Another coloring-scheme — the best one, in my opinion — is like the first one here, except that regular hexagons are given their own color (purple), and squares are given their own as well (black):
