You can see how the colored struts would have been perpendicular to the corresponding colored planes that I had mentioned:

This is because if you were to truncate each vertice, you will get a plane that is parallel to and therefore matches its opposite face. You can see this inYou could also see the red, yellow, green, blue color-coded planes in
The upper picture has truncated tetrahedra.
The lower picture has truncated octahedra.
These were built using Polydron. The colored hexagons are oriented according to the corresponding tetrahedron planes.
You can see how this applies to the coloring problem in http://www.codefun.com/Images/Geometry/DodecTile/image006.jpg
