A Symmetrohedron

Symmetrohedra are symmetrical polyhedra which have many, but not all, faces regular. I just found one which has square faces, regular hexagons, regular octagons, and a bunch of scalene triangles as the irregular faces.

To form this polyhedron, I started with the great rhombcuboctahedron, then formed its base/dual compound. I then took the convex hull of this compound, and then formed the dual of that convex hull, producing the polyhedron you see above. All of this was done using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, which you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
