Polygons & Polyhedra

Mathematica 12: Polygons & Polyhedra

Version 12 further extends the Wolfram Language's geometric capabilities with the addition of general polygons with holes and polyhedra primitives. New functions allow users to construct, classify, decompose and compute properties and operations on polygons and polyhedra. A unified representation and a full integration into the rest of the Wolfram Language add a new level of flexibility and ease of use.
