Abstract. A 3D quasiperiodic tiling derived from a cuboctabedron is obtained by projection from 6D lattice space to 3D tile-space, one less dimensional lattice space than the conventional one. A lattice matrix defining projections from 6D lattice space to tile- and test-space is given and its geometric properties are investigated.
