The triangular-tetrahedral duoprism or tratet is a convex uniform duoprism that consists of 3 tetrahedral prisms and 4 triangular duoprisms. Each vertex joins 2 tetrahedral prisms and 3 triangular duoprisms. It is a duoprism based on a triangle and a tetrahedron, and is thus also a convex segmentoteron, as a tetrahedron atop tetrahedral prism.

Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

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