Polygon - Definition

A Polygon is the term used to describe the smallest unit into which a 3D object can be broken down. These triangles consist either of three, two or only one vertex. In theory, all the vertices of a triangle can be brought together into one. In the computer graphics field, the term Polygon has taken on a slightly altered meaning, more related to the way the shape is stored and manipulated within the computer.
