### Rectified {4,4,4}

**Rectified {4,4,4}**

The regular {4,4,4} has square tiling cells. The vertex figure is a square tiling too.

Therefore, the

*rectified*{4,4,4} contains rectified square tiling cells and square tiling cells. We saw earlier that a rectified square tiling is just another square tiling, so the rectified {4,4,4} has square tiling cells and square tiling cells. Wait a minute, that's just one kind of cell...and hmmmm...that cell is regular. This doesn't sound like a uniform honeycomb.

And indeed it isn't. The rectified {4,4,4} is the regular {4,4,3}! This came as a surprise to me when I saw the rendering. It's the only honeycomb to do this after rectification, so I thought it would be a good one to end on.

**While there are 15 regular honeycombs in hyperbolic space, rectification produces just 14 new honeycombs.**

I hope you enjoyed having these pictures trickle out one-a-day. I'll likely jump back into less frequen…
