Octahedral truncate (EntityTopic, 11)
From Hi.gher. Space
(Redirected from Truncated octahedron)
The octahedral truncate is a particular uniform polyhedron. It is special because it is one of only five regular-faced convex polyhedra that can tile the realm (the others being the cube, triangular prism, hexagonal prism and gyrobifastigium).
