plottools

 icosahedron
 generate 3-D plot object for a icosahedron

 Calling Sequence icosahedron([x, y, z], s, options)

Parameters

 [x, y, z] - location of the icosahedron s - (optional) scale of the icosahedron; default is 1 options - (optional) equations of the form option=value. For a complete list, see plot3d/options.

Description

 • The icosahedron command creates a three-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is a scaled icosahedron located at point [x,y,z]. Note that the scale factor is applied in each dimension. This command is an interface to the plots[polyhedraplot] routine.
 • The plot data object produced by the icosahedron command can be used in a PLOT3D data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.
 • Remaining arguments are interpreted as options, which are specified as equations of the form option = value. For more information, see plottools and plot3d/options.
