Abstract: We give an upper bound on the number of facets of Dirichlet stereohedra for each of the 97 affine conjugacy classes of 3-dimensional crystallographic non-cubic groups without reflections. The bound is higher than 50 only in 9 of the groups and the global bound is 80 facets. We also construct Dirichlet stereohedra with 32 and 29 facets for a hexagonal and a tetragonal group, respectively.
