JGV Example: Another Truncated Cube

This figure can be constructed by removing the corners of a cube,
in such a way that the vertices of the resulting triangle are the
midpoints of the edges of the cube that contain that vertex.
Click here to see this construction.
It can also be constructed as a truncating a regular octahedron.

This figure has the same group of symmetries as the cube (or the octahedron).
