The truncated icosahedral prism or tipe is a prismatic uniform polychoron that consists of 2 truncated icosahedra, 12 pentagonal prisms, and 20 hexagonal prisms. Each vertex joins 1 truncated icosahedron, 1 pentagonal prism, and 2 hexagonal prisms. It is a prism based on the truncated icosahedron. As such it is also a CRF segmentochoron (designated K4.127 on Richard Klitzing's list).
