Physical models are invaluable aids for visualizing concepts clearly in space. In this paper mat board built more stable physical models. Polygons, polygon corners, and polyhedra are used to present a physical proof of regular solids. A physical proof shows five and only five regular corners, and subsequently five regular solids.
