Solid Geometry – 3D Shapes


Anything that occupies space and has 3-dimensional shapes. The 3-dimensional shapes have width, breadth, and height.  These are called 3-dimensional shapes or 3-D shapes.

Parts of a Solid

1. Face

The surface of a solid is called the face of the solid. Solids can have a flat surface or a curved surface.

2. Edge

Two adjacent faces of a solid meet upon a line segment. This is called the edge of the solid.

3. Vertex

The point at which the three edges of a solid meet is called its vertex.
