Polytopes in three dimensions are present in several objects used on daily basis: everything having planar sides without dents or holes belongs to this class of objects. Mathematically, they can be described as intersection of half spaces. Next to this definition, we will consider some of their basic properties and special classes of polytopes in 3D such as the Platonic and Archimedean solids.
