A Platonic Solid is a 3D shape where:
- each face is the same regular polygon
- the same number of polygons meet at each vertex (corner)
Example: the Cube is a Platonic Solid
There are only five platonic solids.
The Platonic Solids
For each solid we have two printable nets (with and without tabs). You can make models with them! Print them on a piece of card, cut them out, tape the edges, and you will have your own platonic solids.
