Octahedron#

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

Create an octahedron of a given size.

An octahedron is composed of eight congruent equilateral triangles.

Parameters:
radiusfloat, default: 1.0

The radius of the circumscribed sphere for the octahedron.

centerSequence, default: (0.0, 0.0, 0.0)

Three-length sequence defining the center of the octahedron.

Returns:
pyvista.PolyData

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

Examples

Create and plot an octahedron.

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