Type Uniform compound
Index UC43
Polyhedra 6 square antiprisms
Faces 48 triangles,

Edges 96
Vertices 48
Symmetry group octahedral (Oh)
Subgroup restricting to one constituent 4-fold dihedral (D4)

This uniform polyhedron compound is a symmetric arrangement of 6 square antiprisms, aligned in pairs with the three axes of 4-fold rotational symmetry of a cube. It results from composing the two enantiomers of the compound of 3 square antiprisms.
