Polyhedra Viewer

6 hours ago by fjordaan

For centuries, mathematicians and artists have been fascinated by the beauty in polyhedra. While most are familiar with only a few of them, such as the Platonic solids, prisms, or pyramids, there are many more polyhedra to discover, with interesting properties and relationships to each other. This application visualizes the relationships between the convex, regular-faced polyhedra. The 120 solids presented here can be transformed into each other by a network of operations. Select a solid below to manipulate it and to explore its relationships with other polyhedra.
