The polyhedron is obtained by successively cutting off each of the vertices of a truncated cuboctahedron (for more detail, No. 29 of the Magic Faces).

The snub cube is a semi-regular convex polyhedron with two properties:

1. All faces are regular polygons of two types - a triangle and a 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.

The snub cube 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.

The polyhedron can be made in one of the other options - a flat-cube with a twist to the left (rotation counter-clockwise) and a twist to the right (rotation clockwise).
