We're been using this script to cut a truncated octahedron out from the sphere and are curious as to how the TO is orientated. When we look at it on the graphics there does not seem to be an obvious reason for the TO orientation. We expected either the center of a square faces or hexagonal face to be aligned with the X-axis but it seems that no faces are actually aligned on any axes.

Is there a reason for the TO to have an orientation that does not have any obvious alignments to the X-axes?
