The **great enneagrammic prism**, or **gistep**, is a prismatic uniform polyhedron. It consists of 2 great enneagrams and 9 squares. Each vertex joins one great enneagram and two squares. As the name suggests, it is a prism based on a great enneagram.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

The coordinates of a great enneagrammic prism, centered at the origin and with edge length 2sin(4π/9), are given by:

- (1, 0, ±sin(4π/9)),
- (cos(2π/9), ±sin(2π/9), ±sin(4π/9)),
- (cos(4π/9), ±sin(4π/9), ±sin(4π/9)),
- (–1/2, ±√3/2), ±sin(4π/9)),
- (cos(8π/9), ±sin(8π/9), ±sin(4π/9)).
