pounce491 could you put up the processing code for this?

tijmenvangurp Wouw, would love to work further on this code, can you upload it? 

We show how to define the Platonic Solids geometrically, observe their shapes and count their faces, edges, and vertices, and give a proof that these are the only five regular solids. [...]

metaphysicalsource Excellent video. Very informative. The world is lucky to have you share your wisdom and knowledge. I look forward to future videos! BTW, you did a great job with those models.

amystarr311 wow! good job

Sergiuss555 ok, the good one. but: 1 don't you think you need to exclude the background black box so, that it will not recognize the objects as cube? just using the solid black or white background.. 2 boring music thank you.

Video demonstrating how to make all the platonic solids using spherical magnets. Tetrahedron - 4 triangles. Cube - 6 x 6 x 6. Octahedron - 8 triangles. Dodecahedron - 12 pentagons. Icosahedron - 20 triangles. [...]

Gazzadp Really good video, Thanks for uploading it!

pav0ni5 you sir are a genius 

In Part 8 The Intro of the 5 Platonic Solids. We discuss how the 5 Platonic Solids have a direct correlation to ourselves (the body), the planet, and the Universe. A quick glance at the Flower of Life and how it ties into the 5 Platonic Solids from w [...]

3DModeler Sweet!

TaiFerret You forgot the dodecahedron!

MIT postdoctoral fellow Emily Peters discusses the Platonic solids, showing that there are only five of these special polyhedra. Emily points out that at 01:05, she tells a lie! How many triangular faces does the octahedron have? Conceived by Elisend [...]

Srikanth Rangdal Wouldn't a heptagon make such a solid with three faces in contact at each vertex?

www.bbc.co.uk In episode two of The Code Marcus du Sautoy takes a look at the Platonic Solids - five perfectly symmetrical solids, central to Greek geometry, that may look familiar to us today - the tetrahedron, the cube, the octahedron, the dodecahe [...]

massabranca this is such a complete and thoughtful video. nice job! I'd like to see more of this crew's work.

MasterMonamour cool things and information nice work:) :) 

Carl Sagan discusses Pythagoras, then introduces the dodecahedron and the other Platonic Solids. [...]

ZachyRAWR Yes! You go Carl Sagan! Plato went DOWN. Now we all have knowledge of the dodecahedron. In your FACE Plato!

plusthinking sagan has a reputation for beeing a idiot, usually a fun char to observe but blaming plato for suppressing knowledge, that takes the cake......
