A Space-Filling Lattice of Truncated Octahedra


Truncated octahedra are among the special polyhedra which can fill space without leaving any gaps. There are others, as well. This image was created using Stella 4d, software you may try, for yourself, right here. There is a free “try it before you buy it” download available.

  1. Dear All,
    I’m looking for a space-filling lattice of great rhombicuboctahedra (also called rhombitruncated cuboctahedra or truncated cuboctahedra).
    Thanks a lot for your time!
