Cumulation (the dual operation to truncation) replaces the faces of a polyhedron with pyramids, such that the base of each pyramid is a face of the polyhedron and each pyramid has a height that is positive, zero, or negative. This example lets you experiment with cumulation of Platonic and Archimedean solids. You can vary the opacity of the surface of the polyhedron.
