# plotting 5,8,16,24,120 and 600-cells

 0 How would one go about plotting these shapes in sage? I think it's using polytopes. but I haven't found ones for 16-cell and 120-cell. Also is this correct? 5-cell = n_simplex(4) 8-cell = n_cube(4) 24-cell = twenty_four_cell 600-cell = six_hundred_cell asked Aug 14 '12 Anonymous

 0 The 4-cube has 8 facets: sage: P = polytopes.n_cube(4) sage: P.f_vector() (1, 16, 32, 24, 8, 1)  And plot of a projection into 3-d: sage: P.plot()  I don't think the 120 cell is implemented. The 16-cell is polytopes.cross_polytope(4) posted Aug 14 '12 Volker Braun 2379 ● 7 ● 23 ● 55
