Half Truncated Octahedron
If we take a regular octahedron and slice off all the 6 corners at 1/3 of its edge length (6 square pyramids), we get a good looking, spacing-filling solid: a truncated octahedron. It is a great exercise in Fusion 360 or any 3D design environment.
Included here are two shells, two halves, two solid wholes, and two shelled wholes, each in 25mm or 50mm. Have fun exploring the 3D space.

STEAM educator, learning from and working with K-12 STEAM teachers to explore new ideas of teaching and engagement. I firmly believe ART is at the core of STEM learning or all human learning! I owe my ideas and designs to the hundreds of K-12 children and teachers and university professors I have had the pleasure of working with, in multiple disciplines-- math, science,engineering language arts, social studies, early childhood education and more! All mistakes, of course, are mine! There is no warranty or liability whatsoever implied or explicit behind the designs or ideas. They are all posted for their potential educational values.
When working with children, please strictly observe all safety and health procedures! Please refer to the NSTA safety guides: http://www.nsta.org/safety/.
