Cubic truncate (EntityTopic, 11)
From Hi.gher. Space
The cubic truncate (CT) is a uniform polyhedron which can be seen as a 3-dimensional analog of the octagon. The other possible analog is the cuboctahedral rectate (COR). While the CT has the octagons on the surface of the shape, the COR has them embedded inside it. Thus when one is concerned with powertopes, the COR comprises three "long and thin" cuboids whereas the CT comprises three "wide and flat" cuboids.
