Have you ever wondered how many edges do you need to create a dodecahedron? With this app, you can learn, teach, explore and play with a lot of various 3D solids

Discover a fascinating world of 3D shapes like prisms, pyramids, solids of revolution and Platonic solids. Start from the simplest and gradually explore the most complex ones. Build solids from scratch with a new Nets Creator mode and discover hundreds of unique net combinations.

Shapes use the power of mobile devices to enhance teacher capabilities and provide possibilities to show things that cannot be shown with physical tools. It can help to create interest and enthusiasm in school mathematics classes at all levels.

The app was verified and approved by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at Adam Mickiewicz University of Poznan. It was specifically prepared to support the teacher in the classroom, but can also be used as a tool for self-study. From now on there is a save and print option available for each net so that the kids can explore solids outside the app and improve their manual skills as well.

'Shapes' features:

- Select 27 unique shapes
- Choose from a variety of prisms, pyramids, Platonic solids and solids of revolution
- Unfold shapes into different net combinations
- Learn about the number of faces, edges and vertices for each solid
- Build solids from scratch in Nets Creator mode
- Explore transparent surfaces mode
- Highlight the vertices and edges
- Color selected elements
- Use simple gesture control
- Rotate the shapes in any direction
- Zoom in and out by pinch and spread gestures
- Align to a basic position by double tap
- Save, print, cut and fold a chosen net
- Examine 3D shape in Augmented Reality! Place the solid on your desk without the need to print and fold them!

Best apps to teach shapes

I love that I can print them. Me and my daughter have built all of them. She loves it.

Great app

Great app and simple yet classy design! It gives me a 3D understanding of the shapes in my study of sacred geometry.
It would have been so much better if:
1. We could have the option to merge shapes to play around with, e.g. create flower of life, able to move the tetrahedron around to create a star.
2. Have colour options.
3. Not sure what the points and segments are for as they cannot be manipulated to play around the shapes with, or create a new shape. Seems pointless.
Hoping that there will be some updates along these lines as it’s such a great app but just limited at this current stage.

I really like this but the 'change colour' option isn't working for me. Fantastic design work!
