A Faceted Truncated Octahedron with Twenty Faces

Faceted Trunc Octa

The twenty faces of this polyhedron are six small blue squares, six interpenetrating, larger red squares, and eight irregular, interpenetrating yellow hexagons. I made it using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, which you can try for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php. The squares are easy to find, but it can be a challenge to see the yellow hexagons. In the .gif below, all of the yellow faces but one are hidden, which should make it easier to see where the hexagons are positioned, relative to the squares.
