The PolyhedronItems_3 concept extends the HalfedgeDSItems concept on page \icon. In addition to the requirements stated there, a model for this concept must fulfill the following requirements for the local PolyhedronItems_3::Vertex_wrapper<Refs,Traits>::Vertex type and PolyhedronItems_3::Face_wrapper<Refs,Traits>::Face type in order to support the point for vertices and the optional plane equation for facets. Note that the items class uses face instead of facet. Only the polyhedral surface renames faces to facets.
 
point type stored in vertices. A HalfedgeDS
has no dimension, so this type is named Point and not Point_3.

A point is always required.

Types for (optionally) associated geometry in faces. If it is not supported the respective type has to be defined, although it can be an arbitrary dummy type, such as void* or Tag_false.
 
plane type stored in faces. A HalfedgeDS
has no dimension, so this type is named Plane and not Plane_3.

We define our own items class based on the available CGAL::HalfedgeDS_face_base base class for faces. We derive the the Halfedge_wrapper without further modifications from the CGAL::HalfedgeDS_items_2, replace the Face_wrapper definition with our new definition, and also replace the Vertex_wrapper with a definition that uses Point_3 instead of Point_2 as point type. The result is a model for the PolyhedronItems_3 concept similar to the available CGAL::Polyhedron_items_3 class. See also there for another illustrative example.
