The ditrigon is a convex semi-uniform hexagon. As such it has 6 sides that alternate between two edge lengths, with each vertex joining one side of each length. All interior angles of a ditrigon measure 120°. If the side lengths are equal, the result is the regular hexagon.
Vertex Coordinates[edit | edit source]
A ditrigon with edge lengths a and b has the vertex coordinates
For retrograde ditrigons (i.e. Tripods and Propeller tripods), a is negative.
In vertex figures[edit | edit source]
The ditrigon appears as a vertex figure in one uniform polyhedron, namely the small ditrigonary icosidodecahedron. This ditrigon has edge lengths of 1 and (√5–1)/2.
