Regular Prisms

Regular prisms
A prism is a polyhedron whose two faces, polygons in form, are bases; the other faces (side faces) have the form of a parallelogram.

The regular prism is the prism, which has regular polygons in the bases, and the side faces are equal rectangles.

The height of the prism is a segment perpendicular to the bases of the prism.
The prism paper net is a flat geometric figure that completely repeats the solid's surface and allows you to recreate a geometric solid when bending and gluing.
Depending on the number of corners of the base, the correct prisms are distinguished:
- triangular or trihedral prisms;
- quadrangular or tetrahedral prisms, etc.

the base is the regular triangle
quadrangular pyramid 4 1
the base is the right quadrilateral (square)
pentagonal pyramid 5 1
the base is the regular pentagon
hexagonal pyramid 6 1
the base is the regular hexagon
heptagonal pyramid 7 1
the base is the regular heptagon
octagonal pyramid 8 1
the base is the regular octagon
nine cornered pyramid 9 1
the base is the regular ninth-gon
decagonal pyramid 10 1
the base is the regular n-gon

How to make a prism of paper?

To build the prism, you will need to print a net on a regular sheet of A4 paper. Download net.

1. Cut out the net of the prism, bend along the marked lines.

2. The flaps show the gluing sequence.
Pasted the first flap, we get:

3. We glue No. 2 and No. 3.

4. We get the finished model of the regular prism.

Prisms from the set "Magic Edges"

To assemble polyhedrons, we can offer you ready-made patterns that are cut and folded.
To do this, you need to use the details of the set Magic Edges 16.
Also, in the release itself, you will find information about the structure of the polyhedrons.
