The **great transitional 12-5 double step prism** is a convex isogonal polychoron that consists of 12 chiral digonal scalenohedra, 24 rhombic disphenoids of two kinds, and 72 phyllic disphenoids of two kinds. 3 digonal scalenohedra, 4 rhombic disphenoids, and 12 phyllic disphenoids join at each vertex. It can be obtained as the convex hull of two orthogonal 12-5 step prisms.

The ratio between the longest and shortest edges is 1: ≈ 1:2.73861.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Coordinates for the vertices of a great transitional 12-5 double step prism are given by:

- (
*a**sin(2π*k*/12),*a**cos(2π*k*/12),*b**sin(10π*k*/12),*b**cos(10π*k*/12)), - (
*b**sin(2π*k*/12),*b**cos(2π*k*/12),*a**sin(10π*k*/12),*a**cos(10π*k*/12)),

where *a* = (2-√3)/2, *b* = (2+√3)/2 and *k* is an integer from 0 to 11.
