The **square tiling prism** or **cubic slab honeycomb** is a prismatic uniform honeycomb of the Euclidean plane. It consists of 2 square tilings and ∞ cubes. Each vertex joins 1 square tiling and 4 cubes. It is a prism based on the square tiling.

It appears as a segment of the cubic honeycomb.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

A square tiling prism of edge length 1 has vertex coordinates given by, where range over the integers:

## Semi-uniform variant[edit | edit source]

The apeirogonal prism has a semi-uniform variant of the form x y4o4o that maintains its full symmetry. This variant uses square prisms as its sides.
