The **triangular-octahedral duoprism** or **troct** is a convex uniform duoprism that consists of 3 octahedral prisms and 8 triangular duoprisms. Each vertex joins 2 octahedral prisms and 3 triangular duoprisms. It is a duoprism based on a triangle and an octahedron, which also makes it a convex segmentoteron.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

The vertices of a triangular-octahedral duoprism of edge length 1 are given by all permutations and sign changes of the last three coordinates of:
