The great rhombated tesseract, or grit, also commonly called the cantitruncated tesseract, is a convex uniform polychoron that consists of 32 triangular prisms, 16 truncated tetrahedra, and 8 great rhombicuboctahedra. 1 triangular prism, 1 truncated tetrahedron, and 2 great rhombicuboctahedra join at each vertex. As one of its names suggests, it can be obtained by cantitruncating the tesseract.

Representations[edit | edit source]

A great rhombated tesseract has the following Coxeter diagrams:

  • x4x3x3o () (full symmetry)
  • xxwwxx4xuxxux3xoooox&#xt (B3 symmetry, great rhombicuboctahedron-first)
  • wx3xx3xw *b3oo&#zx (D4 symmetry)
  • Xwx xxw4xux3xoo&#zx (B3×A1 symmetry)

Semi-uniform variant[edit | edit source]

The great rhombated tesseract has a semi-uniform variant of the form x4y3z3o that maintains its full symmetry. This variant uses 16 truncated tetrahedra of form y3z3o, 8 great rhombicuboctahedra of form x4y3z, and 32 triangular prisms of form x z3o as cells, with 3 edge lengths.

With edges of length a, b, and c (such that it forms a4b3c3o), its circumradius is given by .

It has coordinates given by all permutations of:

  • .
