Java Applets for Visualizing Polyhedra


These pages contain polyhedra in various categories that are physically realizable in 3-dimensional space. Each polyhedron's page contains a Java applet for visualizing the polyhedron, followed by a summary of the polyhedron's vital statistics. The Java applet provides an opaque visual mode, a translucent visual mode, and a metrics mode. In the visual modes, the polyhedron can be rotated and scaled, the perspective can be changed, and individual faces can be examined in isolation. The metrics mode computes the polyhedron's vital statistics empirically.
