The **trihexagonal prismatic honeycomb**, or **thiph**, is a convex uniform honeycomb. 4 triangular prisms and 4 hexagonal prisms join at each vertex of this honeycomb. As the name suggests, it is the honeycomb product of the trihexagonal tiling and the apeirogon.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

The vertices of a trihexagonal prismatic honeycomb of edge length 1 are given by:

Where i, j, and k range over the integers.

## Representations[edit | edit source]

A trihexagonal prismatic honeycomb has the following Coxeter diagrams:

- x∞o o6x3o
- x∞x o6x3o
- x∞o x3x3o3*a
- x∞x x3x3o3*a
