The Augmented Hexagonal Prism

The augmented hexagonal prism (J54) is the 54th Johnson solid. It has 13 vertices, 22 edges, and 11 polygons (4 triangles, 5 squares, and 2 hexagons).

An augmented hexagonal

It can be constructed augmenting a hexagonal prism with a square pyramid. It can be further augmented by a second square pyramid in either para- position, yielding the parabiaugmented hexagonal prism (J55), or in meta- position, yielding the metabiaugmented hexagonal prism (J56). If both meta- positions are augmented, the result is the triaugmented hexagonal prism (J57).


Here are some views of the augmented hexagonal prism from various angles:
