The digonal-scalenohedral 8-3 double step prism is a convex isogonal polychoron, formed as a convex hull of two 8-3 step prisms in a way that leaves six corealmic vertices corresponding to a digonal scalenohedron. It consists of 8 chiral digonal scalenohedra, 16 tetragonal disphenoids, and 16 phyllic disphenoids. 3 digonal scalenohedra, 4 tetragonal disphenoids, and 4 phyllic disphenoids join at each vertex.

It can be constructed by removing an inscribed digonal-scalenohedral 8-3 double step prism from a rectified tesseract.

The ratio between the longest and shortest edges is 1:${\displaystyle {\sqrt {3}}}$ ≈ 1:1.73205.

Vertex coordinates

Coordinates for the vertices of a digonal-scalenohedral 8-3 double step prism are given by:

• (a*sin(2πk/8), a*cos(2πk/8), b*sin(6πk/8), b*cos(6πk/8)),
• (b*sin(2πk/8), b*cos(2πk/8), a*sin(6πk/8), a*cos(6πk/8)),

where a = ${\displaystyle {\frac {{\sqrt {2}}-1}{2}}}$, b = ${\displaystyle {\frac {1+{\sqrt {2}}}{2}}}$, and k is an integer from 0 to 7.
