The stellated dodecagonal prism or compound of two hexagonal prisms is a prismatic uniform polyhedron compound. It consists of 2 stellated dodecagons and 12 squares. Each vertex joins one stellated dodecagon and two squares. As the name suggests, it is a prism based on a stellated dodecagon.

Its quotient prismatic equivalent is the hexagonal antiprismatic prism, which is four-dimensional.

Variations[edit | edit source]

This compound has variants where the bases are non-regular compounds of two hexagons. In these cases the compound has only hexagonal prismatic symmetry and the convex hull is a dihexagonal prism.
