The truncated tetrahedron is one of the thirteen Archimedean solids.

The truncated tetrahedron has 12 vertices, 8 faces and 18 edges. It is generated by truncating the vertices of a tetrahedron at 1/3 edge-length. Here the distance from vertex to center point is scaled to 1; the edge-length is sqrt(2/11).
