### polyhedron radius

Posted:

**Mon Oct 13, 2008 6:42 pm**Hi Rob,

It appears the value you give for a polyhedra radius is the maximum distance between centroid and the vertices.

Is this the excepted definition of polyhedron radius?

My thinking is that this radius, if swept out as a sphere would contain every possible point in the polyhedra. Faces and edges could not surpass this distance.
