Hexagonal bipyramid imaginary cube (H in short).

Triangular prismoid imaginary cube (T).

H and T are imaginary cubes.

They fit into boxes.

The objective of this puzzle is to put 3 H and 6 T into a double-sized box.

Note that it is easy to put eight of them, but there are nine pieces.

One can put so that no gap is left between pieces.

Such a solution is unique modulo rotation of the box.

It has three-hold symmetry.

It is based on 3-dimensional tiling by H and T.
