The volume of a pyramidal frustum whose bases are n-sided regular polygons is

where a1 and a2 are the sides of the two bases.

Note: cot(x) = 1 / tan(x)

For example, I was not provided my a's to calculate the volume my pyramidal octagonal frustrum. I was provided only an overal width (let overal width = W) so I had to calculate a1 with this equation:

a1 = W * (√2 / (2 + √2))

Then with the given h I solved for the overal width for the top octagon using trigometry;

Used the same a1 equation but for a2;

Then used this equation to find my volume:

It works, I tried it and proved it with AutoCAD using the command MASSPROP

Why is a truncated octahedron called a truncated octahedron?

Start with an octahedron in the form of a quadrilateral based dipyramid a regular octahedron is a special case of this). This shape has six vertices - chop these off so as to remove a quadrilateral based pyramid. You will be left with a truncated octahedron. It is an octahedron which has been truncated (shortened) by cutting off its extremities.
