# What is the name of this 3D shape with 12 outer vertices?

Faces: 48

Outside vertices: 12

Other vertices: 14 (I believe)

• Am I seeing the shape correctly to think that this is essentially three $8$-sided dice merged? Dec 8, 2017 at 14:41
• @abiessu I thought so, but apparently not. Well, not regular ones, at least. Dec 8, 2017 at 14:46
• @Arthur: ah, so close. At least I can say I was in the ballpark... Dec 8, 2017 at 14:50
• And if anyone wanted to know, and didn't already, this is a common wooden star puzzle. (Amazon link just because all the others I found had spoilers on how to solve it...) Dec 8, 2017 at 16:24
• See this video for examples of puzzles based on this figure, tessellations of the star, and folding a cube into two stars! youtube.com/watch?v=gWgXlvIlpzM Dec 10, 2017 at 1:52
