Polytope of the Month

This month's Polytope of the Month is a modification of the familiar snub 24-cell:

The runcinated snub 24-cell

This is the runcinated snub 24-cell, an interesting polytope that, even though it is not uniform, is nevertheless vertex-transitive and CRF, thus belonging to the class of scaliform polytopes. As its name implies, it is derived from the snub 24-cell by radially expanding the 24 icosahedral cells outward. The remaining gaps are filled in by 24 truncated tetrahedra, 96 triangular cupolae, and 96 triangular prisms.

Check out the runcinated snub 24-cell page to explore the structure of this interesting polytope. As is customary, we provide full coordinates.
