In four-dimensional Euclidean geometry, the runcinated 16-cell honeycomb is a uniform space-filling honeycomb. It can be seen as a runcination of the regular 16-cell honeycomb, containing Rectified 24-cell, runcinated tesseract, cuboctahedral prism, and 3-3 duoprism cells.

Alternate names[edit]

  • Runcinated hexadecachoric tetracomb/honeycomb
  • Small prismated demitesseractic tetracomb (spaht)
  • Small disicositetrachoric tetracomb
