The JGV instance above shows a truncated tetrahedron.

We have cut off just enough from each corner to make the hexagonal faces
regular.

If we cut off a little less or a little more from each corner,
that would change the shape of the hexagonal faces.

This is the type of solid that is discussed in Exercise 4.4.10
of the Math 3113 notes.

to see where the corners of the original tetrahedron were removed.
