3D Shapes Resources

3D shapes are solid objects that have three dimensions. These dimensions are length, width, and height. While 2D shapes are flat, 3D shapes objects that have depth to them. A soccer ball is a 3D shape, also known as a sphere, while a circle on a piece of paper is a 2D shape. To learn more about the different names and properties of 3D shapes, see our resources below.

Get Started With 3D Shapes

3D shapes can be complicated to work with at first because they have strange names and properties that are different from the familiar 2D shapes. We’ve put together a list of some properties of common 3D shapes and common equations that can be used when working with 3D shapes.

3D ShapePropertiesVolumeSurface Area
SphereIt has no edges or vertices (corners)
It has one surface
It is perfectly symmetrical
All points on the surface are the same distance "r" from the center
43 × π × r34 × π × r2
CylinderIt has a flat base and a flat top
The base is the same as the top
It has one curved side
π × r2 × h 2 × π × r × (r + h)
ConeIt has a flat base
It has one curved side
13 × π × r2 × hπ × r × (r + s)
CubeIt has 6 Faces, each with 4 edges (and is a square)
It has 12 Edges
It has 8 Vertices (corner points), each is where 3 edges meet
(edge length)36 × (edge length)2
Triangular PrismIt has identical ends (triangles) and flat faces
It has the same cross section all along its length
Base area × length2 × base area + base perimeter × length

Now that you have a list of some of the common 3D shapes, dive into our resources to learn how to apply these shapes and other, or move on to our volume page to learn how to calculate how much area these 3D shapes take up.
