A geometric space figure is a three dimensional figure with points that do not share the same plane. Space geometry helps describe everyday objects such as buildings, tools and objects. These figures can have any number of faces, sides, vertices and edges.

Three dimensional objects have width, length and height and can be made up of various geometric shapes. An example of a complex space figure is the rhombicosidodecahedron. It consists of 30 square faces, 20 triangle faces, 12 pentagon faces, 120 edges and 60 vertices. A rhombicosidodecahedron is an Archimedean solid and is considered a convex, isogonal, nonprismatic solid.
