 form
 returns the form of the geometric object

 Calling Sequence form(obj)

Parameters

 obj - geometric object

Description

 • The routine returns the form of the given object supported by the geom3d package; FAIL otherwise.
 • The command with(geom3d,form) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{geom3d}\right):$

define point A with coordinates 1, 2, 3.

 > $\mathrm{point}\left(A,1,2,3\right)$
 ${A}$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{form}\left(A\right)$
 ${\mathrm{point3d}}$ (2)

Define a dodecahedron with center (0,0,0), radius of circum-sphere 1

 > $\mathrm{dodecahedron}\left(d,\mathrm{point}\left(o,0,0,0\right),1\right)$
 ${d}$ (3)
 > $\mathrm{form}\left(d\right)$
 ${\mathrm{dodecahedron3d}}$ (4)
