Solid Geometry
Solid Geometry is the geometry of threedimensional space, the kind of space we live in ... 
Three Dimensions
It is called threedimensional, or 3D because there are three dimensions: width, depth and height.

Simple Shapes
Let us start with some of the simplest shapes:
Properties
Solids have properties (special things about them), such as:
 volume (think of how much water it could hold)
 surface area (think of the area you would have to paint)
 how many vertices (corner points), faces and edges they have
Polyhedra and NonPolyhedra
There are two main types of solids, "Polyhedra", and "NonPolyhedra":
Polyhedra : (they must have flat faces) 



NonPolyhedra: (if any surface is not flat)
