Elongated Alternated Cubic Honeycomb

The elongated alternated cubic honeycomb is a space-filling tessellation (or honeycomb) in Euclidean 3-space. It is composed of octahedra, triangular prisms, and tetrahedra in a ratio of 1:2:2.

It is vertex-uniform with 3 octahedra, 4 tetrahedra, 6 triangular prisms around each vertex. Each prism meets an octahedron at one end and a tetrahedron at the other.

It is one of 28 convex uniform honeycombs.

It has a gyrated form called the gyroelongated alternated cubic honeycomb with the same arrangement of cells at each vertex.

    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)
