The great rhombicosidodecahedral prism or griddip is a prismatic uniform polychoron that consists of 2 great rhombicosidodecahedra, 12 decagonal prisms, 20 hexagonal prisms, and 30 cubes. Each vertex joins one of each type of cell. It is a prism based on the great rhombicosidodecahedron. As such it is also a convex segmentochoron (designated K-4.150 on Richard Klitzing's list).
This polychoron can be alternated into a snub dodecahedral antiprism, which cannot be made uniform.
The great rhombicosidodecahedral prism can be vertex-inscribed into the small tritrigonary prismatohecatonicosidishexacosichoron.
