The Heptagonal Prism
The heptagonal prism is a 3D uniform polyhedron bounded by 9 polygons (2 heptagons and 7 squares), 21 edges, and 14 vertices. It may be considered to be the extrusion of the heptagon.

Coordinates
The Cartesian coordinates of the heptagonal prism, centered on the origin and having edge length 2, are:
 (0, r, ±1)
 (±A, B, ±1)
 (±C, −D, ±1)
 (±1, −h, ±1)
where r, A, B, C, D, and h are roots of the following polynomials within the indicated ranges:
7r^{6} − 56r^{4} + 112r^{2} − 64 = 0,  2≤r≤3 
A^{3} − A^{2} − 2A + 1 = 0,  1≤A≤2 
7B^{6} − 21B^{4} + 14B^{2} − 1 = 0,  1≤B≤2 
C^{3} − 2C^{2} − C + 1 = 0,  2≤C≤3 
7D^{6} − 14D^{4} + 7D^{2} − 1 = 0,  0≤D≤1 
7h^{6} − 35h^{4} + 21h^{2} − 1 = 0,  2≤h≤3 
r and h are the outradius and inradius, respectively, of a regular heptagon of edge length 2.
Their approximate values are:
