Is there a formula to determine which polyhedra will tessellate in 3D without any spaces?

without any spaces? –  jspecter Oct 14 '11 at 14:10
without voids between the forms. i.e. perfectly tessellate. –  Carly Mallon Oct 14 '11 at 14:37

You can find a "survey" of information and references about space filling polyhedra here: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Space-FillingPolyhedron.html
