createCubeOctahedron()
```function varargout = createCubeOctahedron()
%CREATECUBEOCTAHEDRON Create a 3D mesh representing a cube-octahedron
%
%   [V E F] = createCubeOctahedron;
%   Cubeoctahedron can be seen either as a truncated cube, or as a
%   truncated octahedron.
%   V is the 12-by-3 array of vertex coordinates
%   E is the 27-by-2 array of edge vertex indices
%   F is the 1-by-14 cell array of face vertex indices
%
%   [V F] = createCubeOctahedron;
%   Returns only the vertices and the face vertex indices.
%
%   MESH = createCubeOctahedron;
%   Returns the data as a mesh structure, with fields 'vertices', 'edges'
%   and 'faces'.
%
%   Example
%   [n e f] = createCubeOctahedron;
%   drawMesh(n, f);
