# List of 3d Shapes Name and Pictures for Kids

### What are 3D Shapes?

A 3D shape is also called a 3-dimensional shape with specific properties, including the number of edges, faces, and vertices. All 3D shaped objects are solids having some measurements in the X, Y, and Z-axis called length, breadth, and height, which are also called the dimensions of the solid object.

3D shapes are usually arisen by the rotation of the 2D shapes.

### Some properties of 3D shapes:

3D shapes or solids have some properties according to their shapes and sizes,

• Vertices: A vertex is a corner point where the edges meet.
• Edges: An edge is simply a line segment drawn between the faces.
• Faces: A face is a curve or flat surface on the 3D surface covered by its edges.

### Description of 3D Shapes:

1. Cube:
A cube is defined as a three-dimensional square with six equal sides. All the faces of the cube have equal dimensions. All angles are equal and right-angled triangles.

2. Cuboid:
A cuboid is also known as a rectangular prism. The faces of the cuboid are rectangular. It has six faces, eight edges, and eight vertices, respectively.

3. Cone: A cone is a solid object that has a circular base and has a single vertex. It is a geometrical shape that tapers.

4. Cylinder:
A cylinder is a solid geometrical figure that has two parallel circular bases connected by a curved surface. It doesn’t have any vertices.

5. Prism:
A prism always contains the same shape or face on either side.

6. Pyramid:
A pyramid with all upper faces is isosceles triangles that connect at a single vertex, and the base surface is like a square.

7. Hemisphere (half sphere):
A hemisphere looks like a cut portion of the sphere. The cut surface looks like a circle, and the other portion is like a solid semicircle.

8. Tetrahedron (Triangular pyramid):
A pyramid with all faces like a triangle is called a tetrahedron. It has six edges, four faces, and four vertices, respectively.

9. Square pyramid (Square based pyramid):
A square pyramid is a pyramid that has a square base, and the rest faces are like triangles together connected at a single vertice at the tip.

10. Sphere:
A sphere is a Rounded Solid ball that does not contain any flat surface and edges and vertices

11. Polyhedron:
A polyhedron is a solid and 3D shape that contains flat surfaces and straight edges. A regular polyhedron is a 3D shape having all faces are of the same shape.

12. Dodecahedron:
A dodecagon is also called a regular polyhedron whose all faces are of the same shape. It has 12 faces, and all are like pentagons.

13. Triangular prism:
Triangular Prism is a prism having two triangular faces whose vertices are connected by an edge forming a rectangular face. It has six vertices, nine edges, and five faces.

14. Torus:
A torus is a donut-shaped solid having a hole in between and forms a ring-like structure.

15. Pentagonal prism:
Pentagonal prism is a prism having two pentagonal faces connected with their vertices.
