What is the 3d name for octagon
If the figure has eight sides, but they are not equal, it has no special name. It would just be called an eight-sided polygon. A polygon is a closed figure made by joining lin…e segments, where each line segment intersects exactly two others.
An IRREGULAR octogon
The Octagon in Dunedin is of course the shape. Which leads to the Q Why that shape. Well, Dunedin was laid out by (among others) Surveyor Kettle, and the land to be surveyed w…as a flat strip of land lying along the foot of reasonably steep hills. A simple rectangular plan was suited to the flat land, and the hills were also divided into rectangles, but lying at 45 degrees to the first set. And the Octagon was the device for joining both sets of streets. George Street lies to the North, and princes street to the South, but the strip inside the octagon that joins these two has no name. Actually the octagon is surrounded by a 2nd octagon of streets, Moray Place, and most of a third octagon exists. The latter was not completed, as that part of the harbour was then not reclaimed to land, and when it eventually was, the completion of the 3rd octagon was abandoned.
The use of "another" in the question implies that you already have one (or more) in mind. I regret I cannot read your mind so I do not know what hose are and so cannot answer …the question.
Also known as an octangle, the octagon may also be more looselydescribed as a polygon.
