Platonic Solids
Helen Birch
Visualisation of platonic solids in 3D
This project consists of several models of the five platonic solids, namely the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron and the icosahedron. These solids are described in the Sasami notation. In addition there are files which illustrate symmetry planes of the cube and reflective planes of a cube. A final addition is the joining of two solids to show duality and isomorphism between the platonic solids. These models were intended to be used as an aid to learning about group theory.
