 octahedron
 generate 3-D plot object for an octahedron Calling Sequence octahedron([x, y, z], s, options) Parameters

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

 • The octahedron command creates a three-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is a scaled octahedron 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] command.
 • The plot data object produced by the octahedron 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. Examples
