Compound of three cubes
|Compound of three cubes|
|Convex hull||Nonuniform truncated octahedron|
|Symmetry group||octahedral (Oh)|
|Subgroup restricting to one constituent||4-fold prismatic (D4h)|
This uniform polyhedron compound is a symmetric arrangement of 3 cubes, considered as square prisms. It can be constructed by superimposing three identical cubes, and then rotating each by 45 degrees about a separate axis (that passes through the centres of two opposite faces). It is also a stellation of the rhombicuboctahedron.
