The square-octagonal duoprism, being the prism of the octagonal prism, is also the central part of the small rhombicuboctahedral prism, which can in turn be constructed as part of the small disprismatotesseractihexadecachoron.
This polychoron can be alternated into a digonal-square duoantiprism, although it cannot be made uniform. The octagons can also be alternated into long rectangles to create a digonal-square prismantiprismoid, which is also nonuniform.
It is also a CRF segmentochoron, designated K-4.70 on Richard Klitzing's list. As such it can also be viewed as a prism based on the octagonal prism.
The convex hull of two orthogonal square-octagonal duoprisms is either the small disprismatotesseractihexadecachoron or the square duotruncatoprism.
The vertices of a square-octagonal duoprism of edge length 1, centered at the origin, are given by:
