How to plot an octahedron inside a sphere and the same sphere inside a cube in 3d?

    $\begingroup$ Take a look at PolyhedronData and GeometricTransform. Have you tried anything? $\endgroup$ – Kuba Aug 12 at 11:35
  • $\begingroup$ I tried in graphics 3D for the circumsphere of octahedron. But the output is saying octahedron is not a graphic 3d primitive.I did not understand this. $\endgroup$ – Sunita Aug 12 at 11:42

    $\begingroup$ Hard do say anything without a code sample. Also, make sure you went through examples in documentation I mentioned. $\endgroup$ – Kuba Aug 12 at 11:55


Graphics3D[{Opacity[.25], PolyhedronData["Octahedron", "Faces"],Sphere[{0, 0, 0}, 1/Sqrt[2]],Cuboid[1/Sqrt[2] {-1, -1, -1}, 1/Sqrt[2] {1, 1, 1}]}]

enter image description here

cs = Circumsphere @ Octahedron[];

cuboid = Cuboid @@ Transpose[RegionBounds[cs]];

Graphics3D[{Opacity[0.6, Red], Octahedron[],
  Opacity[.4, Blue], cs, 
  Opacity[.4, Yellow], cuboid}]

enter image description here
