Polyhedron Category C2: Compound Truncates


These are the truncates of the regular compounds. The last one is a quasitruncate. All of these are orientable.

C7. Tisso - (TISS so) truncated stella octangula, or truncated stellated octahedron. Faces are 8 triangles and 8 hexagons. It is a compound of 2 tuts. It has 24 vertices and its verf is an isosceles triangle.

C8. Taki - (TAK ee) truncated chiricosahedron. Faces are 20 triangles and 20 hexagons. It is a compound of 5 tuts and it is chiral. It has 60 vertices and its verf is an isosceles triangle. Taki shows up as combocells in many of the idcossids and dircospids.

C9. Te - (TE) truncated icosicosahedron. Faces are 40 triangles which are paired up and 40 hexagons, also paired up. It is a compound of 10 tuts. It has 120 vertices. Its verf is an isosceles triangle (isot for short). Te shows up in many of the idcossids and dircospids as combocells.

C10. Tar - (TAR) truncated rhombihedron, previously called hyperhombicosicosahedron (harie). Faces are 30 octagons and 40 triangles (20 pairs). It is the compound of 5 tics. It has 60 vertices. Its verf is an isot.

C11. Quitar - (quit TAR) quasitruncated rhombihedron, previously called quasihyperhombicosicosahedron (quahri). Faces are 30 octagrams and 40 triangles (20 pairs). It is a compound of 5 quiths. It has 60 vertices and its verf is an isot.


Conjugate Pairs: tar-quitar.

Self Conjugates: tisso, taki, te.
