The cantellated 120-cell is a uniform 4-polytope. It is named by its construction as a Cantellation operation applied to the regular 120-cell. It contains 1920 cells, including 120 rhombicosidodecahedra, 1200 triangular prisms, 600 octahedra. Its vertex figure is a wedge, with two rhombicosidodecahedra, two triangular prisms, and one octahedron meeting at each vertex.

The cantitruncated 120-cell is a uniform polychoron.

This 4-polytope is related to the regular 120-cell. The cantitruncation operation create new truncated tetrahedral cells at the vertices, and triangular prisms at the edges. The original dodecahedron cells are cantitruncated into great rhombicosidodecahedron cells.

The image shows the 4-polytope drawn as a Schlegel diagram which projects the 4-dimensional figure into 3-space, distorting the sizes of the cells. In addition, the decagonal faces are hidden, allowing us to see the elemented projected inside.

The cantellated 600-cell is a uniform 4-polytope. It has 1440 cells: 120 icosidodecahedra, 600 cuboctahedra, and 720 pentagonal prisms. Its vertex figure is an isosceles triangular prism, defined by one icosidodecahedron, two cuboctahedra, and two pentagonal prisms.

Construction

This 4-polytope has cells at 3 of 4 positions in the fundamental domain, extracted from the Coxeter diagram by removing one node at a time:

1 1200       None
(Degenerate triangular prism)

2 720       Pentagonal prism
3 120       Rectified dodecahedron
(Icosidodecahedron)

There are 1440 pentagonal faces between the icosidodecahedra and pentagonal prisms. There are 3600 squares between the cuboctahedra and pentagonal prisms. There are 2400 triangular faces between the icosidodecahedra and cuboctahedra, and 1200 triangular faces between pairs of cuboctahedra.

There are two classes of edges: 3-4-4, 3-4-5: 3600 have two squares and a triangle around it, and 7200 have one triangle, one square, and one pentagon.
