Modeling of Kepler-Poinsot Solid Using Isomorphic Polyhedral Graph

Authors: Hidetoshi Nonaka


This paper presents an interactive modeling system of uniform polyhedra using the isomorphic graphs. Especially, Kepler-Poinsot solids are formed by modifications of dodecahedron and icosahedron.

Keywords: Shape modeling, Graph Drawing, Kepler-Poinsot solid, Polyhedralgraph
