The square triswirlprism is a convex isogonal polychoron and member of the duoprismatic swirlprism family that consists of 24 square gyroprisms and 96 phyllic disphenoids. 4 square gyroprisms and 8 phyllic disphenoids join at each vertex. It can be obtained as a subsymmetrical faceting of the dodecagonal duoprism. It is the third in an infinite family of isogonal square dihedral swirlchora.

The ratio between the longest and shortest edges is 1: ≈ 1:1.93185.

Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Coordinates for the vertices of a square triswirlprism constructed as the convex hull of three square duoprisms of edge length 1, are given as Cartesian products of the vertices of square S1:

  • S1 × S1,
  • S2 × S2 (S1 rotated 30 degrees),
  • S3 × S3 (S1 rotated 60 degrees).
