PostSubject: Truncated Cube Problem   Tue Mar 11, 2014 7:12 am

Okay I have tried to make a truncated cube because I thought "Well If I do cycles from a platonic solid to its dual and I already have the cube and the cube was easiest to make maybe the truncated cube is next and it has 8 octagons and 8 triangles. I was already thinking "Everything has to be equilateral since it is from a cube". The angle between each side of the octagon is 135 degrees and I tried the 1 inch that worked for my other 4 solid figures I made and the one I recently made which is the truncated tetrahedron and I thought I could fit 6 1 inch octagons and 8 equilateral triangles of the same length on a sheet of construction paper but I could only fit 1 octagon and a few triangles. I tried halfing the length of each of the sides and it still did not work even though I could fit more. Do I need more paper for it than I thought I would need or do I need to half the length again to 1/4 inch?
