The quasirhombicuboctahedron, also commonly known as the nonconvex great rhombicuboctahedron, or querco is a uniform polyhedron. It consists of 8 triangles and 6+12 squares, with one triangle and three squares meeting at each vertex. It also has 6 octagrammic pseudofaces. It can be obtained by quasicantellation of the cube or octahedron, or equivalently by pushing either polyhedron's faces inward and filling the gaps with squares.

6 of the squares in this figure have full B2 symmetry, while 12 of them have only A1×A1 symmetry with respect to the whole polyhedron.

It is also sometimes called a great rhombicuboctahedron, but is not to be confused with the convex polyhedron with the same name.

It is a faceting of the great cubicuboctahedron, using the original's squares and triangles, while also introducing 12 additional squares.

Related polyhedra[edit | edit source]

The rhombisnub quasirhombicosicosahedron is a uniform polyhedron compound composed of 5 quasirhombicuboctahedra.

The quasirhombicuboctahedron can be constructed as an octagrammic prism augmented with retrograde square cupolas facing inwards on the octagrammic faces.

Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Its vertices are the same as those of its regiment colonel, the great cubicuboctahedron.
