The triangular cupolic prism, or tricupe, is a CRF segmentochoron (designated K-4.45 on Richard Klitzing's list). It consists of 2 triangular cupolas, 4 triangular prisms, 3 cubes, and 1 hexagonal prism.

As the name suggests, it is a prism based on the triangular cupola. As such, it is a segmentochoron between two triangular cupolas. It can also be viewed as a segmentochoron between a hexagonal prism and a triangular prism.

Two triangular cupolic prisms can be joined at their hexagonal prismatic cells in opposite orientations to form a cuboctahedral prism. By rotating one of the triangular cupolic prisms before joining, one can instead form a triangular orthobicupolic prism.

## Vertex coordinates

Coordinates of the vertices of a triangular cupolic prism of edge length 1 centered at the origin are given by:

• $\left(\pm {\frac {1}{2}},\,-{\frac {\sqrt {3}}{6}},\,{\frac {\sqrt {6}}{3}},\,\pm {\frac {1}{2}}\right),$ • $\left(0,\,{\frac {\sqrt {3}}{3}},\,{\frac {\sqrt {6}}{3}},\,\pm {\frac {1}{2}}\right),$ • $\left(\pm {\frac {1}{2}},\,\pm {\frac {\sqrt {3}}{2}},\,0,\,\pm {\frac {1}{2}}\right),$ • $\left(\pm 1,\,0,\,0,\,\pm {\frac {1}{2}}\right).$
