3D-printables files for Akiyama minimizing polyhedra with 4,5,...,12 vertices
- Concept - equations
- Two small prints in grey and white color
- The first 3D print ever of Akiyama's minimizing polyhedron with 8 vertices
These objects solve the following minimization problem: among all polytopes with given number of vertices and given volume, find the one which has the least surface area.
