Hey, I''ve heard the term Polyhedron used alot, mostly is respect to BSP and Octrees. I''m not sure what they are or their difference between polygons. Help?

Answer: http://www.google.com/ Put Polyhedron in the search box and hit go. What I''m saying is, did you even try to find out yourself. No you didn''t. I just looked and found a place with an answer in about 10 seconds.

So instead of givin him a hard time why didnt you take the extra 10 seconds to cut and paste what you found?
