I need help drawing the shape of an octahedral in LaTeX witk TikZ, shown below. Thank you! I start to draw an octahedral but unfortunately;y I don't know how I can put the vertices in it.

enter image description here

This is what I did

\coordinate (A1) at (0,0);
\coordinate (A2) at (0.6,0.2);
\coordinate (A3) at (1,0);
\coordinate (A4) at (0.4,-0.2);
\coordinate (B1) at (0.5,0.5);
\coordinate (B2) at (0.5,-0.5);

\draw[dashed] (A1) -- (A2) -- (A3);
\draw (A1) -- (A4) -- (A3);
\draw[dashed] (B1) -- (A2) -- (B2);
\draw (B1) -- (A4) -- (B2);
\draw (B1) -- (A1) -- (B2) -- (A3) --cycle;
  • Hint: Searching for commutative diagram will give you related questions, especially have a look at ctan.org/pkg/tikz-cd. Jun 19 at 15:55
  • For future reference: it is generally a better idea to add such code directly to your question. Also, you can edit your question at any given time. Not all people read the comments directly.

  • Since this is question is not really about a table, but more so about the creation of a commutative diagram, I edited the tag to reflect on that.

\begin{tikzcd}[row sep=huge, column sep=huge]

                                 & b \arrow[uul, crossing over] \arrow[ur] \arrow[from=uur, squiggly, crossing over]  &
