One way to faciliate learning of stereometry is to give
3D illustration instead of usual 2D figures. Here ia an example from the axonometry.
For three angles with the sum Pi there exists a rectangular parallelepiped R with
diagonals AG, CE, DF, BH such that the dihedral angles at the edge AG of the six pairwise symmetric tetrahedra
into which R is decomposed by the planes AGB, AGC, AGD are these angles [1, pg. 136, 2, pg. 249].
Use the following nets to make models.
