The dodecagonal ditetragoltriate or twaddet is a convex isogonal polychoron and the tenth member of the ditetragoltriate family. It consists of 24 dodecagonal prisms and 144 rectangular trapezoprisms. 2 dodecagonal prisms and 4 rectangular trapezoprisms join at each vertex. However, it cannot be made uniform. It is the first in an infinite family of isogonal dodecagonal prismatic swirlchora.

This polychoron can be alternated into a hexagonal double antiprismoid, which is also nonuniform.

It can be obtained as the convex hull of 2 similarly oriented semi-uniform dodecagonal duoprisms, one with a larger xy dodecagon and the other with a larger zw dodecagon.

Using the ratio method, the lowest possible ratio between the longest and shortest edges is 1:${\displaystyle {\frac {1+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}}}$ ≈ 1:1.36603. This value is also the ratio between the two sides of the two semi-uniform duoprisms.

## Vertex coordinates

The vertices of a dodecagonal ditetragoltriate, assuming that the trapezoids have three equal edges of length 1, centered at the origin, are given by all permutations of the first and second, as well as the third and fourth coordinates of:

• ${\displaystyle \left(\pm {\frac {1+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {1+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {2+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {2+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}}\right),}$
• ${\displaystyle \left(\pm {\frac {1+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {1+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {1+{\sqrt {3}}}{4}},\,\pm {\frac {5+3{\sqrt {3}}}{4}}\right),}$
• ${\displaystyle \left(\pm {\frac {1}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {2+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {2+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {2+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}}\right),}$
• ${\displaystyle \left(\pm {\frac {1}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {2+{\sqrt {3}}}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {1+{\sqrt {3}}}{4}},\,\pm {\frac {5+3{\sqrt {3}}}{4}}\right),}$
