The Great Rhombicuboctahedron


While in an elementary 3D modeling course I came across this confusing disaster of a polyhedron is called the great rhombicuboctahedron which essentially means “super complex shape that no one will ever use of any sane reason ever”.  For a course assignment I decided to recreate this shape in blender as it seemed to be not only one of the most complicated shapes in art but also that it might have some uses in an RPG game or possibly even an FPS (similar to the cube in Doom 3). While I have no immediate use for this shape I am still hoping that I can either find a way to incorporate it into a game I am working on in a way that makes or that someday someone else will either suggest to me or find a use for this monstrosity.
