The hexahedron, octahedron, and icosahedron can all be orthographically projected as regular hexagons, and the dodecahedron can be so projected as a somewhat lopsided yet equal-angled hexagon (not shown), or as a hexagonally-symmetrical dodecagon (shown here). The tetrahedron&mdash;or "freak" polyhedron if you will&mdash;can of course be projected as an equilateral triangle, which although not truly hexagonal is still of the same general angular family. </p> Fri, 16 Apr 2010 23:16:00 +0000 https://hexnet.org/content/hexagonal-projection-platonic-solids https://hexnet.org/content/hexagonal-projection-platonic-solids
