The truncated hexacosichoron, or tex, also commonly called the truncated 600-cell, is a convex uniform polychoron that consists of 120 regular icosahedra and 600 truncated tetrahedra. 1 icosahedron and five truncated tetrahedra join at each vertex. As the name suggests, it can be obtained as the truncation of a hexacosichoron.

It is also isogonal under H4/5 symmetry, with the icosahedra having the symmetry of snub tetrahedra, and 480 of the truncated tetrahedra having trigonal symmetry only.

Vertex coordinates

The vertices of a truncated hexacosichoron of edge length 1 are given by all even permutations of:

  • ,

Semi-uniform variant

The truncated hexacosichoron has a semi-uniform variant of the form o5o3y3x that maintains its full symmetry. This variant uses 120 icosahedra of size y and 600 semi-uniform truncated tetrahedra of form x3y3o as cells, with 2 edge lengths.

With edges of length a (surrounded by truncated tetrahedra only) and b (of icosahedra), its circumradius is given by .
