An n-agonal bifrustum is a polyhedron composed of three parallel planes of n-agons, with the middle plane largest and usually the top and bottom congruent.
|Set of bifrusta|
Example hexagonal bifrustum
|Faces||2 n-gons, 2n trapezoids|
|Symmetry group||Dnh, [n,2], (*n22)|
|Dual polyhedron||Elongated bipyramids|
It can be constructed as two congruent frusta combined across a plane of symmetry, and also as a bipyramid with the two polar vertices truncated.
They are duals to the family of elongated bipyramids.
Three bifrustums are duals to three Johnson solids, J14-16. In general, a n-agonal bifrustum has 2n trapezoids, 2 n-agons, and is dual to the elongated dipyramids.
|Triangular bifrustum||Square bifrustum||Pentagonal bifrustum|
|6 trapezoids, 2 triangles. Dual to elongated triangular bipyramid, J14||8 trapezoids, 2 squares. Dual to elongated square bipyramid, J15||10 trapezoids, 2 pentagons. Dual to elongated pentagonal bipyramid, J16|
