dodecagon 3d shapeA while ago I made a 12 sided figure out of paper, by igloo myrtilles fourmis #2 20060302 08:35:38

Re: dodecagon 3d shapeDual Polyhedra. I wondered what it would be called. I bet there aren't triple polyhedra! Maybe if you deal with unsymmetrical things like the continents on the Earth and draw a dot in middle of each and connect... I think that would just be a jumbled mess, I'm not sure. I suppose a 3D computer program could do the process of finding the next shape and displaying it. Doesn't a golf ball have 236 indents? I thought that was a Trivial Pursuit question, but it was a long time ago, so I might have the # wrong. igloo myrtilles fourmis #4 20060304 08:27:26
Re: dodecagon 3d shapeSomething like this? Last edited by krassi_holmz (20060304 08:29:20) IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #5 20060304 08:38:25
Re: dodecagon 3d shapeHere's another(sorry, I'm not good at graphics stuff in Mathematica): Last edited by krassi_holmz (20060304 08:49:22) IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #6 20060304 13:55:31
Re: dodecagon 3d shapeThat's what I was thinking, thanks for the pictures. igloo myrtilles fourmis #7 20060304 19:11:23
Re: dodecagon 3d shapeYa, this is coz you can't rotate pictures in Mathematica. IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations.
