Square tiling prism

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.

Semi-uniform variant edit

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.
