The Biaugmented Triangular Prism

The biaugmented triangular prism is the 50th Johnson solid (J50). It has 8 vertices, 17 edges, and 11 faces (10 equilateral triangles and 1 square).

The biaugmented triangular

The biaugmented triangular prism can be constructed by attaching two square pyramids to two of the square faces of a triangular prism. Or, equivalently, attaching a second square pyramid to the augmented triangular prism (J49). If a third square pyramid is added, the result is the triaugmented triangular prism (J51).


Here are some views of the biaugmented triangular prism from various angles:
