Net (Polyhedron)

A plane diagram in which the Edges of a Polyhedron are shown. All convex Polyhedra have nets, but not all concave polyhedra do (the constituent Polygons can overlap one another when a concave Polyhedron is flattened out). The Great Dodecahedron and Stella Octangula are examples of a concave polyhedron which have nets.
