In geometry, a demihepteract or 7-demicube is a uniform 7-polytope, constructed from the 7-hypercube (hepteract) with alternated vertices truncated. It is part of a dimensionally infinite family of uniform polytopes called demihypercubes.

E. L. Elte identified it in 1912 as a semiregular polytope, labeling it as HM7 for a 7-dimensional half measure polytope.

Coxeter named this polytope as 141 from its Coxeter diagram, with a ring on one of the 1-length branches, and Schläfli symbol { 3 3 , 3 , 3 , 3 3 } or {3,34,1}.

Cartesian coordinates

Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of a demihepteract centered at the origin are alternate halves of the hepteract:

(±1,±1,±1,±1,±1,±1,±1)

with an odd number of plus signs.
