The **small 10-3 double step prism** is a convex isogonal polychoron that consists of 10 tetragonal disphenoids, 40 phyllic disphenoids of two kinds, and 40 irregular tetrahedra. 2 tetragonal disphenoids, 8 phyllic disphenoids, and 8 irregular tetrahedra join at each vertex. It can be obtained as one of several polychora formed as the convex hull of two orthogonal 10-3 step prisms.

This polychoron cannot be optimized using the ratio method, because the solution would yield a biambodecachoron instead.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Coordinates for the vertices of a small 10-3 double step prism are given by:

where *a*/*b* is greater than but less than 1, and *k* is an integer from 0 to 9.
