Rectification wrt. a non-regular polytope is meant to be the singular instance of truncations on all vertices
at such a depth that the hyperplane intersections on the former edges will coincide (provided such a choice exists).
Within the specific case of triddip all edges belong to a single orbit of symmetry, i.e. rectification clearly is applicable,
*without* any recourse to Conway's **ambification** (chosing the former edge centers generally).
None the less, wrt. the individual cells of the pre-image, there an ambification is possible only, i.e.
trip *cannot* be rectified (within this stronger sense).

Still, because the pre-image uses different polygonal faces, this would result in 2 different edge sizes in the outcome polychoron. That one here is scaled such so that the shorter one becomes unity. Then the larger edge will have size q=sqrt(2).

No uniform realisation is possible for any of those `ao3ob bo3oa&#zc`.
Even so all are isogonal.
