It's a square antiprism. I was planning on making one with both sides 57mm per edge, but I didn't have any spare cubes to do it. Maybe I will now. :D

It is not a precise antiprism. To be precise it needs to have squares of equal size.

@ENCuber:
I feel honored that you have (again) reinvented two of my mods.
If you want something new than delete the non-truncated faces of that cube by extending the remaining faces. I won't beat you there unless you need one year or so...
