Properties vertex-transitive

The cantitruncated cubic honeycomb is a uniform space-filling tessellation (or honeycomb) in Euclidean 3-space, made up of truncated cuboctahedra, truncated octahedra, and cubes in a ratio of 1:1:3.

John Horton Conway calls this honeycomb a n-tCO-trille, and its dual triangular pyramidille.

Four cells exist around each vertex:

Symmetry

Cells can be shown in two different symmetries. The linear Coxeter-Dynkin diagram form can be drawn with one color for each cell type. The bifurcating diagram form can be drawn with two types (colors) of truncated cuboctahedron cells alternating.

Alternation

Vertex figure for alternated bitruncated cubic honeycomb, with 5 tetrahedral, one icosahedral, and two snub cube cells, but edge-lengths can't be made equal.
Alternated cantitruncated cubic honeycomb.png

This image shows a partial honeycomb of the alternation of the cantitruncated cubic honeycomb. It contains three types of cells: snub cubes, icosahedra (snub tetrahedron), and tetrahedra. In addition the gaps created at the alternated vertices form tetrahedral cells.
Although it is not uniform, constructionally it can be given as Coxeter-Dynkin diagrams Template:CDD or Template:CDD.
