In the geometry of hyperbolic 3-space, the order-3-6 heptagonal honeycomb a regular space-filling tessellation (or honeycomb). Each infinite cell consists of a heptagonal tiling whose vertices lie on a 2-hypercycle, each of which has a limiting circle on the ideal sphere.

Geometry

The Schläfli symbol of the order-3-6 heptagonal honeycomb is {7,3,6}, with six heptagonal tilings meeting at each edge. The vertex figure of this honeycomb is an triangular tiling, {3,6}.

It has a quasiregular construction,      , which can be seen as alternately colored cells.
