## Syntax

`[F1c,F2c,F1,F2,C1,C2,VT]=truncatedOctahedronMesh(r,nCopies)`

## Description

Creates a truncated octahedron mesh where r sets the radias and nCopies (a 1x3 vector) sets the number of copies in the x, y, and z direction. The output consists of:

F1c, F2c: the hexgonal and quadrilateral face cell arrays (1 cell entry per element).

F1, F2: the hexgonal and quadrilateral face arrays

C1, C2: color/label data for the face arrays

VT: the vertex array

Plot settings

fontSize=15; faceAlpha1=1;

r=sqrt(5)/4; %Radii, results in a width of 1 n=5; %Desired number of copies in each direction %The actual input nCopies=[n n n+ceil((n+1)/2)+1]; %Number of offset copies

[F1c,F2c,F1,F2,C1,C2,VT]=truncatedOctahedronMesh(r,nCopies);

Plotting results

cFigure; hold on; suptitle('A mesh of truncated octahedra'); gpatch(F1,VT,C1,'k',faceAlpha1); gpatch(F2,VT,C2,'k',faceAlpha1); colormap(gjet); axisGeom(gca,fontSize); camlight('headlight'); drawnow;
