Three Archimedean Solids Which Fill Space Together: The Great Rhombcuboctahedron, the Truncated Tetrahedron, and the Truncated Cube
To start building this spacefilling 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
ZigZag: A Faceting of the Great Rhombcuboctahedron
I made this using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator. You can try this program for free at http://www.software3d.com/Stella.php.
A Faceted Great Rhombcuboctahedron
Some prefer to call the great rhombcuboctahedron the “truncated cuboctahedron,” instead. Whichever term you prefer, this is a faceted version of that Archimedean solid. I made it using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator, software you may find here.

494 Circles, Each, Adorning Two Great Rhombcuboctahedra, with Different (Apparent) Levels of Anxiety
The design on each face of these great rhombcuboctahedra is made from 19 circles, and was created using both Geometer’s Sketchpad and MSPaint. I then used a third program, Stella 4d (available here), to project this image on each … Continue reading

A Great Rhombcuboctahedron, Decorated with Circles and Hexagons
The images on the faces of this polyhedron were created with Geometer’s Sketchpad and MSPaint. Projecting these images onto these faces, and then creating this rotating image, was accomplished using Stella 4d: Polyhedron Navigator— a program you can try for … Continue reading
