Dodecahedron#

Dodecahedron(radius=1.0, center=(0.0, 0.0, 0.0))[source]#

Create a dodecahedron of a given size.

A dodecahedron is composed of twelve congruent regular pentagons.

Parameters
radiusfloat, optional

The radius of the circumscribed sphere for the dodecahedron.

centersequence, optional

Three-length sequence defining the center of the dodecahedron.

Returns
pyvista.PolyData

Mesh for the dodecahedron. Cell scalars are defined that assign integer labels to each face (with array name "FaceIndex").

Examples

Create and plot a dodecahedron.

>>> import pyvista
>>> tetra = pyvista.Dodecahedron()
>>> tetra.plot(categories=True)
