Truncated 7-orthoplexes

In seven-dimensional geometry, a truncated 7-orthoplex is a convex uniform 7-polytope, being a truncation of the regular 7-orthoplex.

There are 6 truncations of the 7-orthoplex. Vertices of the truncation 7-orthoplex are located as pairs on the edge of the 7-orthoplex. Vertices of the bitruncated 7-orthoplex are located on the triangular faces of the 7-orthoplex. Vertices of the tritruncated 7-orthoplex are located inside the tetrahedral cells of the 7-orthoplex. The final three truncations are best expressed relative to the 7-cube.

Construction

There are two Coxeter groups associated with the truncated 7-orthoplex, one with the C7 or [4,35] Coxeter group, and a lower symmetry with the D7 or [34,1,1] Coxeter group.
