Making a cuboctahedron

Introduction -- Making the Modules -- Making the Polyhedra -- Jim's Origami Page
The cuboctahedron has eight triangular faces and six square faces. There are 12 vertices at which two triangular and two square faces meet in alternation. It has 24 edges, all of which are triangle/square hybrid (tr--sq) modules.

There are many nice ways to color this one, for example eight modules of each color forming opposite pairs of squares. One neat one is to use six modules each of four colors, having each color form a hexagonal band around the middle of the polyhedron.

This is another very solid polyhedron.
