|truncations by the vertices give the truncated cube, then the cuboctahedron, then the truncated octahedron, and the complete truncation the octahedron||a truncation by the edges gives a chamfered cube with all edges equal, and the complete truncation the rhombic dodecahedron
(likewise for the chamfered octahedron)
|truncations the vertices and by the edges lead to the small rhombicuboctahedron
(starting with the cuboctahedron gives the great rhombicuboctahedron )
Be patient during the initialization! (reload the page if an animation doesn't start)
