The hexagonal duoprism or hiddip, also known as the hexagonal-hexagonal duoprism, the 6 duoprism or the 6-6 duoprism, is a noble uniform duoprism that consists of 12 hexagonal prisms, with 4 joining at each vertex. It is also the 12-5 gyrochoron. It is the first in an infinite family of isogonal hexagonal dihedral swirlchora and also the first in an infinite family of isochoric hexagonal hosohedral swirlchora.

This polychoron can be alternated into a triangular duoantiprism, although it cannot be made uniform.

A unit hexagonal duoprism can be vertex-inscribed into the antifrustary distetracontoctachoron and ditetrahedronary dishecatonicosachoron.

Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Coordinates for the vertices of a hexagonal duoprism of edge length 1, centered at the origin, are given by:

  • ,
  • ,
  • ,
  • .

Simpler coordinates can be given in 6-dimensional space as all permutations of

  • ,

where the sum of the first three coordinates is 0. Multiplying these coordinates by gives a set of integral coordinates.

Representations[edit | edit source]

A hexagonal duoprism has the following Coxeter diagrams:

  • x6o x6o () (full symmetry)
  • x3x x6o () (G2×A2 symmetry, one hexagon seen as ditrigon)
  • x3x x3x () (A2≀S2 symmetry, both hexagons seen as ditrigons)
  • xux xxx6ooo&#xt (G2×A1 axial)
  • xux xxx3xxx&#xt (A2×A1 symmetry, ditrigonal axial)
