The **hexagonal prismatic honeycomb**, or **hiph**, is a convex noble uniform honeycomb. 6 hexagonal prisms join at each vertex of this honeycomb. It is the honeycomb product of the hexagonal tiling and the apeirogon.

This honeycomb can be alternated into a gyrated tetrahedral-octahedral honeycomb, which can be made uniform.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Coordinates for the vertices of a hexagonal prismatic honeycomb of edge length 1 are given by:

where i, j, and k range over the integers.

## Representations[edit | edit source]
