|Orthogonal projections in A5 Coxeter plane|
There are 5 degrees of rectifications for any 5-polytope, the zeroth here being the 5-orthoplex itself, and the 4th and last being the 5-cube. Vertices of the rectified 5-orthoplex are located at the edge-centers of the 5-orthoplex. Vertices of the birectified 5-orthoplex are located in the triangular face centers of the 5-orthoplex.

Its 40 vertices represent the root vectors of the simple Lie group D5. The vertices can be seen in 3 hyperplanes, with the 10 vertices rectified 5-cells cells on opposite sides, and 20 vertices of a runcinated 5-cell passing through the center. When combined with the 10 vertices of the 5-orthoplex, these vertices represent the 50 root vectors of the B5 and C5 simple Lie groups.
- rectified pentacross
- rectified triacontiditeron (32-faceted 5-polytope)
There are two Coxeter groups associated with the rectified pentacross, one with the C5 or [4,3,3,3] Coxeter group, and a lower symmetry with two copies of 16-cell facets, alternating, with the D5 or [32,1,1] Coxeter group.
Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of a rectified pentacross, centered at the origin, edge length are all permutations of:

The rectified 5-orthoplex is the vertex figure for the 5-demicube honeycomb:
