(0,0,12,16)-deltahedron consisting of 4 hexagonal modules containing a sphere connected to 6 rods, with rows of triangles in between. It can also be seen as a snub expansion of a truncated tetrahedron, where the hexagons have been replaced by 6 triangles.

Another way of looking at this is the way the 12 spheres connected to 5 rods are distributed over the surface of the deltahedron in between the spheres that are connected to 6 rods. In this case they form 6 pairs.

It is completely rigid, and highly reminiscent of Alain Lobel's frames.
