Description: One of the most common forms of geometric model-making involves construction of the five Platonic solids, and of various related symmetric three-dimensional polyhedra. The most common construction methods involve folding and gluing together cut-out paper polygons, but some of the model-builders listed on this page have carved their polyhedra from solid materials.
