Polyhedron Category 2: Truncates

The truncates can be formed by chopping the vertices off of a regular polyhedron, the quasitruncates have a much deeper cut. The first five are convex and are therefore Archimedean solids. All of these are orientable. All of these have isosceles triangle shaped verfs. Tut has 12 vertices; tic, toe, and quith have 24; all others have 60. These polyhedra show up quite a bit as cells of uniform polychora. The polychoron categories most similar to this one are 2 and 7.
