Truncation would result in 3 different edge sizes in the outcome isohedral polychoron. That one here is scaled such so that the shorter specified one becomes unity. Then the larger specified edge will have size h=sqrt(3). The third one would be the arbitrary expansion size y (wrt. the rectified extremum, i.e. corresponding to the arbitrary truncation depth). In fact, for y=0 this results again in rect-batatoh, while y → ∞ results again in the pre-image batatoh (rescaled back down accordingly).
