The Waterman polyhedra display the convex hull of the lattice points within radius of a given center. This Demonstration offers three lattices (body-centered cubic, face-centered cubic, simple cubic) and a variety of possible centers, with the origin as the default.


As the radius increases, data from the center is removed to preserve viewing quality.
