In 7-dimensional geometry, 1_{33} is a uniform honeycomb, also given by Schläfli symbol {3,3^{3,3}}, and is composed of 1_{32} facets.
It is created by a Wythoff construction upon a set of 8 hyperplane mirrors in 7-dimensional space.
The facet information can be extracted from its Coxeter-Dynkin diagram.
Removing a node on the end of one of the 3-length branch leaves the 1_{32}, its only facet type.
The vertex figure is determined by removing the ringed node and ringing the neighboring node. This makes the trirectified 7-simplex, 0_{33}.
The edge figure is determined by removing the ringed nodes of the vertex figure and ringing the neighboring node. This makes the tetrahedral duoprism, {3,3}×{3,3}.
Each vertex of this polytope corresponds to the center of a 6-sphere in a moderately dense sphere packing, in which each sphere is tangent to 70 others; the best known for 7 dimensions (the kissing number) is 126.
The group is related to the by a geometric folding, so this honeycomb can be projected into the 4-dimensional demitesseractic honeycomb.

contains as a subgroup of index 144.^{[1]} Both and can be seen as affine extension from from different nodes:
The E_{7}^{*} lattice (also called E_{7}^{2})^{[2]} has double the symmetry, represented by [[3,3^{3,3}]]. The Voronoi cell of the E_{7}^{*} lattice is the 1_{32} polytope, and voronoi tessellation the 1_{33} honeycomb.^{[3]} The E_{7}^{*} lattice is constructed by 2 copies of the E_{7} lattice vertices, one from each long branch of the Coxeter diagram, and can be constructed as the union of four A_{7}^{*} lattices, also called A_{7}^{4}:
The 1_{33} is fourth in a dimensional series of uniform polytopes and honeycombs, expressed by Coxeter as 1_{3k} series. The final is a noncompact hyperbolic honeycomb, 1_{34}.
