The great snub cube, gassic, or compound of three square antiprisms is a uniform polyhedron compound. It consists of 24 triangles and 6 squares, with one square and three triangles joining at a vertex.
Its quotient prismatic equivalents are the small square gyroprismatic triothowedge, medial square gyroprismatic triorthowedge, great square gyroprismatic triorthowedge, small transitional square gyroprismatic triorthowedge, and great transitional square gyroprismatic triorthowedge, which are five-dimensional.
