The **square duoantiprism** or **squiddap**, also known as the **square-square duoantiprism**, the **4 duoantiprism** or the **4-4 duoantiprism**, is a convex isogonal polychoron that consists of 16 square antiprisms and 32 tetragonal disphenoids. 4 square antiprisms and 4 tetragonal disphenoids join at each vertex. It can be obtained through the process of alternating the octagonal duoprism. However, it cannot be made uniform, and has two edge lengths. It is the second in an infinite family of isogonal square dihedral swirlchora and also the third in an infinite family of isogonal digonal prismatic swirlchora, the other being the digonal double tetraswirlprism.

The square duoantiprism contains the vertices of 2 tesseracts, seen as square duoprisms where the base squares of one are in dual orientation to the squares of the other.

The square duoantiprism can be vertex-inscribed into a bitetracontoctachoron, in much the same way that each tesseract can be vertex-inscribed into an icositetrachoron.

The ratio between the longest and shortest edges is 1: ≈ 1:1.30656.
