I have an old version of my course notes for when I was teaching with 5.0, and I wanted to do transformations on polyhedra. The number of vertices were small enough that you can visibly extract them via: <<Graphics`Polyhedra` Show[Polyhedron[Octahedron]] Polyhedron[Octahedron]//InputForm If you are interested, http://pruffle.mit.edu/3.016-2006/ Lecture 7 Not a pretty solution, but it worked for me. >
