In geometry, the truncated heptagonal tiling is a semiregular tiling of the hyperbolic plane. There is one triangle and two tetradecagons on each vertex. It has Schläfli symbol of t{7,3}. The tiling has a vertex configuration of 3.14.14.

Dual tiling[edit]

The dual tiling is called an order-7 triakis triangular tiling, seen as an order-7 triangular tiling with each triangle divided into three by a center point.

Related polyhedra and tilings[edit]

This hyperbolic tiling is topologically related as a part of sequence of uniform truncated polyhedra with vertex configurations (3.2n.2n), and [n,3] Coxeter group symmetry.

From a Wythoff construction there are eight hyperbolic uniform tilings that can be based from the regular heptagonal tiling.

Drawing the tiles colored as red on the original faces, yellow at the original vertices, and blue along the original edges, there are 8 forms.
