**Definition of 3D Shapes?**

A 3D shape can also be called a 3-dimensional shape. It has specific properties such as the number of edges and faces. Solids with certain measurements along the X,Y,and Z-axis, also known as length, breadth and height, are all 3D-shaped objects.

3D shapes are often created by rotating 2D shapes.

**Here are some properties of 3D shapes**

Based on their sizes and shapes, 3D shapes or solids can have certain properties.

**Vertices**– A vertex is the corner point at which the edges meet.**Edges**– An edge is simply a segment of line drawn between two faces.**Faces**– A face is a surface that has a curve or is flat on the surface 3D covered by its edges.

- Here is a list of 3D shapes that are common:

- Circle
- Prism
- Cylinder
- Sphere
- Cube
- Cone
- Pyramid

## Description of 3D Shapes

**Cube**A cube can be described as a three-dimensional square having six equal sides. The cube’s faces have equal dimensions. All angles are equal, and all triangles are right-angled.

**Cuboid-**

The cuboid can also be known as a rectangular prism. The cuboid’s faces are rectangular. It has six faces and eight edges.

**Cone-**A cone is a solid object with a circular base and a single vertex. It is a geometrical form that taper.

**Cylinder**A cylinder is a solid geometrical shape that has two parallel circular bases joined by a curving surface. It does not have any vertices.

**Prism**– A prism has the same shape on both sides.

**Pyramid**– A pyramid with all the upper faces is an isosceles triangle that connects at one vertex. The base surface is a square.

**Half sphere, Hemisphere**:- A hemisphere is a portion of the sphere that has been cut. The cut surface appears like a circle and the other half is like a semicircle.

**Tetrahedron (Triangular Pyramid)**:- A tetrahedron is a pyramid that has all sides like a triangle. It has six edges and four faces. There are also four vertices.

**Square pyramid (Square-based pyramid)**-A square pyramid has a square base and all faces connect at one vertice at its tip.

**Sphere**-A sphere is a Rounded Solid Ball that doesn’t have a flat surface or edges or vertices.

**Polyhedron**-A polyhedron can be described as a solid, 3D shape with flat surfaces and straight edges. A regular polyhedron, on the other hand, is a 3D shape that has all faces of the same shape.

**Dodecahedron:**-A dodecagon can also be called a regular polyhedron, which has all its faces being the same shape. It has 12 faces and they all look like pentagons.

**Triangular prism**-Triangular prism is a prism with two triangular faces. The vertices of the faces are connected by an edge that forms a rectangular face. It has six vertices, nine edges and five faces.

**Torus:**-Torus refers to a donut-shaped solid with a hole between it. It forms a ring-like structure.

**Pentagonal prism:**-A prism with two pentagonal faces linked to their vertices is called a Pentagonal prism.
