The transitional 10-3 double step prism is a convex isogonal polychoron that consists of 10 digonal scalenohedra, 20 rhombic disphenoids, and 40 phyllic disphenoids. 3 digonal scalenohedra, 4 rhombic disphenoids, and 8 phyllic disphenoids join at each vertex. It can be obtained as the convex hull of two orthogonal 10-3 step prisms.

The ratio between the longest and shortest edges is 1: ≈ 1:2.23607.

Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Coordinates for the vertices of a transitional 10-3 double step prism are given by:

  • (a*sin(2πk/10), a*cos(2πk/10), b*sin(6πk/10), b*cos(6πk/10)),
  • (b*sin(2πk/10), b*cos(2πk/10), a*sin(6πk/10), a*cos(6πk/10)),

where a = 42-185/6, b = 42+185/6 and k is an integer from 0 to 9.
