Inradius sqrt(5/8) = 0.790569
Dual spid

This polychoron can be obtained as the convex hull of 2 mutually dual pens and 2 mutually inverted raps, all of the same (pseudo) edge length a. The edges of those raps thereby become the long diagonals a = rr of the rhombs {(r,R)2}. Only the 3 consecutive lacings (all of size x) remain as true edges.

The corner angles of those rhombs are r = arccos(1/4) = 75.522488° resp. R = arccos(-1/4) = 104.477512°. The rhomb diagonals thus are rr = a = sqrt(5/2) = 1.581139 resp. RR = sqrt(3/2) = 1.224745.

Each cell is an according oblate rhombohedron. In fact, the vertices of those cells could be axially 4-colored, thereby resulting in the tegum sum description of the full polychoron.
