Small rhombicuboctahedron

rhombicuboctahedron

The polyhedron is obtained on the basis of the operation of mathematical expansion (for more detail, No. 21 of the Magic Edges).

A small rhombicuboctahedron is a semi-regular convex polyhedron with two properties:
1. All faces are regular polygons of two types - tegon and square;
2. For any pair of vertices, there is a symmetry of the polyhedron (that is, a motion that translates the polyhedron into itself) that transforms one vertex to another.

Archimedes

The small rhombicuboctahedron is one of the 13 solids of Archimedes.

Archimedean solids are semiregular polyhedra in the sense that their faces are regular polygons, but they are not the same, while the condition of one of the types of spatial symmetry: tetrahedral, octahedral or icosahedral is preserved.

To assemble a small rhombicuboctahedron, you will need to print out a scan on a regular A4 sheet. Download net
For printing, you can use both white and colored paper.

If you are using a color printer, then we suggest downloading a color net of a small rhombicuboctahedron.

Video. Build a polyhedron from a single net

Video from our partners - the team "ART KOSEKOMA", clearly demonstrates how the net is converted into a geometric shape:
 

Small rhombicuboctahedron from the set "Magic Edges"

For the assembly of a polyhedron, we can offer you ready-made nets - cut and folded.
To do this, you need to use the details of the set Magic Edges 21.
In addition, in the release itself you will find information about the structure of the polyhedron.
