RhinoPolyhedra for Rhino will allow you to create and visualize a variety of polyhedral shapes; over 650 different shapes.

RhinoPolyhedra supports Rhino 7 for Windows and Mac. Use Rhino's PackageManager command to download and install the latest version.

RhinoPolyhedra supports Rhino 6 for Windows and Mac, and Rhino 5 for Windows.

RhinoPolyhedra for Rhino 6 also supports Grasshopper on both Windows and Mac.

RhinoPolyhedra has these Rhino commands and Grasshopper components:

  • Polyhedron - Creates a variety of polyhedra; over 630 different shapes.
  • MeshIcoSphere - Create a mesh icosphere, which is a a refined icosahedron.
  • MeshQuadSphere - Creates a mesh quad sphere, which is a refined cube.
  • PolarZonohedron. Creates a polar zonohedron, which is a convex zonohedron derived from the star which joins opposite vertices of any right n-gonal prism (for n even) or antiprism (for n odd). The faces of this zonohedron consist of n equal rhombs surrounding one vertex, n rhombs beyond these, and so on, giving n-1 sets of n rhombs altogether that end with those surrounding the opposite vertex.
  • QuickHull - Creates a convex hull from selected points using the QuickHull algorithm.
  • Waterman - Creates a Waterman polyhedron, which is created by packing spheres, according to cubic close packing (CCP), then sweeping away the spheres that are farther from the center than a defined radius, then creating the convex hull of the resulting pack of spheres.
