Truncated Octahedron model

On application

In geometry, the truncated octahedron is an Archimedean solid. It has 14 faces (8 regular hexagonal and 6 square), 36 edges, and 24 vertices. Since each of its faces has point symmetry the truncated octahedron is a zonohedron. It is also the Goldberg polyhedron GIV(1,1), containing square and hexagonal faces. Like the cube, it can tessellate (or “pack”) 3-dimensional space, as a permutohedron. This model comes from the exhibition which is related to the five hundredth birthday of Lucia Pacioli in 2009, Arezzo Italy. Diameter 30 cm.
