I wanted to know how unfolding a Polyhedron in Mathematica works. I can't seem to make it work even when I have all the coordinates I need.

The Polyhedron of reference is


and I used the coordinates taken from

PolyhedronData["RhombicDodecahedron", "NetCoordinates"]`

1 Answer 1

PolyhedronData["RhombicDodecahedron", "Net"]

  • $\begingroup$ Oh, I'm actually running the 11th version of Mathematica, so I don't have that function. Anyway, what if I wanted to make an animation where the Polyhedron folds and unfolds by using a slider (Like a manipulate)? $\endgroup$ May 25, 2019 at 12:57
  • $\begingroup$ @MattiaRugna: I'm running v. 11.0. What happens when you run this code? And an animation wasn't what your question asked. $\endgroup$ May 25, 2019 at 16:58
  • $\begingroup$ It actually gives me an error. $\endgroup$ May 25, 2019 at 17:43
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah,the animation is something else connected to it Hahaha $\endgroup$ May 25, 2019 at 17:44
