Polyhedra Sketches

Bill Finzer

Back to Early Key Sketches || Sketchpad Resources || Main CIGS Page

Here are sketches showing the platonic solids in true perspective. You have control over the placement of the picture plane, the station point, and the horizon. An animation button rotates the figure for you. Some of the sketches show in 3D if you have a pair of 3D glasses. (The colors may be a bit off on your monitor.) Below some of the links are GIF's portraying the sketches.
