The omnitruncated triangular-hexagonal prismatic honeycomb is a space-filling tessellation (or honeycomb) in Euclidean 3-space. It is composed of dodecagonal prisms, hexagonal prisms, and cubes in a ratio of 1:2:3.

It is constructed from a great rhombitrihexagonal tiling extruded into prisms.

It is one of 28 convex uniform honeycombs.
