Return : rotation about an axis of the polyhedra

Code #1 : rotate() Example – tetrahedron

 `# Python code explaining``# SymPy.Polyhedron.rotate()`` ` `# importing SymPy libraries``from` `sympy.combinatorics ``import` `Permutation, Cycle``from` `sympy.combinatorics.polyhedron ``import` `tetrahedron, octahedron`` ` `# Using from ``# sympy.combinatorics.polyhedron.Polyhedron.rotate()`` ` `# Creating Polyhedron``a ``=` `tetrahedron.copy()`` ` `print` `(``"Polyhedron - rotate form : "``, a.array_form)`` ` `# Rotating the axis``a.rotate(``0``)`` ` `print` `(``"\nPolyhedron - rotate form : "``, a.array_form)`

Output :

Polyhedron – rotate form : [0, 1, 2, 3]

Polyhedron – rotate form : [0, 2, 3, 1]

Code #2 : rotate() Example – octahedron

 `# Python code explaining``# SymPy.Polyhedron.rotate()`` ` `# importing SymPy libraries``from` `sympy.combinatorics ``import` `Permutation, Cycle``from` `sympy.combinatorics.polyhedron ``import` `tetrahedron, octahedron`` ` `# Using from ``# sympy.combinatorics.polyhedron.Polyhedron.rotate()`` ` `# Creating Polyhedron``a ``=` `octahedron.copy()`` ` `print` `(``"Polyhedron - rotate form : "``, a.array_form)`` ` `# Rotating the axis``a.rotate(``0``)`` ` `print` `(``"\nPolyhedron - rotate form : "``, a.array_form)`

Output :

Polyhedron – rotate form : [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

Polyhedron – rotate form : [0, 2, 3, 4, 1, 5]
