Re: How to draw 3D objects with 7 sides?

There are different varieties, I want one with all equal triangular faces. There is also one with two pentagons and five squares and another that has three right triangles, one isosceles? triangle and three squares. If it would help I would be happy to send these two that I have drawn to you. What format would you like?

  I'm not sure what you're looking for, but a seven sided polyhedron would be a heptahedron.

  Dear Fellow CAD-aholics,


  I would like to design memorial pieces for the space shuttle crews, so I would like to have a seven sided object, with one face for each member.


  Somehow I thought it would be a lot easier than it has turned out to be and I was wondering if I had jumped the track or something! I guess I am looking for a 7 sided geodesic sphere? Some questions that come to mind are; what is it properly called, are they at all useful, where do they hide because I cannot recall ever seeing one....


  Until someone tells me otherwise I think I'm going to call them St. Ives gons. :-)
