Three Archimedean Solids Which Fill Space Together: The Great Rhombcuboctahedron, the Truncated Tetrahedron, and the Truncated Cube

To start building this space-filling honeycomb of three Archimedean solids, I begin with a great rhombcuboctahedron. This polyhedron is also called the great rhombicuboctahedron, as well as the truncated cuboctahedron. Next, I augment the hexagonal faces with truncated tetrahedra. The … Continue reading
