Click the buttons labelled with Symmetry Operations below to view in 3D

Oh point group contains 3 C4, 4 C3, 9 C2, 4 S6, 3 S4, 3 σh, 6 σd and a centre of inversion

Sulfur hexafluoride is octahedral

Inversion operation is a reflection through the centre of the molecule. In this case, the centre of the molecule is the Sulfur atom.
