Archimedean solid containing 2 triangles and 2 squares in alternating sequence around each vertex ((3.4)2).

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.
