 Alternated hypercubic honeycomb

An alternated square tiling is another square tiling, but having two types of squares, alternating in a checkerboard pattern.
A twice alternated square tiling.
A partiallyfilled alternated cubic honeycomb with tetrahedral and octahedral cells.
A subsymmetry colored alternated cubic honeycomb.
In geometry, the alternated hypercube honeycomb (or demicubic honeycomb) is a dimensional infinite series of honeycombs, based on the hypercube honeycomb with an alternation operation. It is given a Schläfli symbol h{4,3...3,4} representing the regular form with half the vertices removed and containing the symmetry of Coxeter group for n ≥ 4. A lower symmetry form can be created by removing another mirror on a order4 peak.
The alternated hypercube facets become demihypercubes, and the deleted vertices create new orthoplex facets. The vertex figure for honeycombs of this family are rectified orthoplexes.
These are also named as hδ_{n} for an (n1)dimensional honeycomb.
