A KiteFaced Polyhedron Based on the Cube, Octahedron, and Rhombic Dodecahedron
Above is the entire figure, showing all three set of kites. The yellow set below, though, lie along the edges of a rhombic dodecahedron. The next set, the blue kites, lie along the edges of an octahedron. Finally, the red … Continue reading

Six Hexagons and Four Triangles, As Faces of a Small Polyhedron
One could call this a halftruncated cube. A fully truncated cube has eight triangular faces, created by truncation, and this has half as many. (See here for more information on Stella 4d, the software used to create this image.)
