vector<Reg_Polygon*> get_net (const real hexagon_diameter, [bool do_half = false]) Static function
This function does not yet exist! When it does, it will return the net, i.e., the two-dimensional pattern of hexagons and squares that can be folded into a model of a truncated octahedron. The net will lie in the x-z plane. The hexagons and squares will have enclosing circles of diameter hexagon_diameter. If the argument do_half is true, only the first half of the net will be created. This will be used in the non-default constructor. See Polyhedron Reference; Regular Platonic Polyhedra; Truncated Octahedron Constructors and Setting Functions.
