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(2πk/12), a*cos(2πk/12), b*sin(10πk/12), b*cos(10πk/12)),
  • (b*sin(2πk/12), b*cos(2πk/12), a*sin(10πk/12), a*cos(10πk/12)),

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