The **digonal-square tetraswirlprism**, also known as the **16-2 double step prism** or **16-6 double step prism**, is a convex isogonal polychoron that consists of 8 square antiprisms, 16 rhombic disphenoids and 96 phyllic disphenoids of three kinds obtained as a subsymmetrical faceting of the octagonal-hexadecagonal duoprism.

Using the ratio method, the lowest possible ratio between the longest and shortest edges is 1: ≈ 1:2.11968.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Coordinates for the vertices of a digonal-square tetraswirlprism, assuming that the edge length differences are minimized, are given as Cartesian products of the vertices of square *S _{1}* and digon

*D*with length ratio 1:1:

_{2}*S*×_{1}*D*,_{2}*S*×_{3}*D*(_{4}*S*rotated 22.5 degrees and_{1}*D*rotated 45 degrees),_{2}*S*×_{5}*D*(_{6}*S*rotated 45 degrees and_{1}*D*rotated 90 degrees),_{2}*S*×_{7}*D*(_{8}*S*rotated 67.5 degrees and_{1}*D*rotated 135 degrees)._{2}
