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.
