In geometry, a demidekeract or 10-demicube is a uniform 10-polytope, constructed from the 10-cube with alternated vertices truncated. It is part of a dimensionally infinite family of uniform polytopes called demihypercubes.

Coxeter named this polytope as 171 from its Coxeter diagram, with a ring on one of the 1-length branches, .

Cartesian coordinates

Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of a demidekeract centered at the origin are alternate halves of the dekeract:


with an odd number of plus signs.
