[[Archimedean Solids|Archimedian solid]] containing 2 triangles and 2 squares in alternating sequence around each vertex ('''3-4-3-4''').
The cuboctahedron is the only uniform polyhedron where the side length is equal to the circumradius. As such, it can optionally be constructed with a sphere in the center and 12 rods connecting it to each vertex.

* Keep the spheres magnetically neutral by [[Balanced polarity|balancing the polarities around each vertex]] for maximum strength.
