This class offers routines for constructing sample 3manifold triangulations of various types.
These triangulations may be useful for testing new code, or for simply getting a feel for how Regina works.
The sample triangulations offered here may prove especially useful in Regina's scripting interface, where working with preexisting files is more complicated than in the GUI.
Note that each of these routines constructs a new triangulation from scratch. It is up to the caller of each routine to destroy the triangulation that is returned.

Returns a onevertex triangulation of the WeberSeifert dodecahedral space.
This 3manifold is described in "Die beiden Dodekaederraume", C. Weber and H. Seifert, Math. Z. 37 (1933), no. 1, 237253. The triangulation returned by this routine (with 23 tetrahedra) is given in "The WeberSeifert dodecahedral space is nonHaken", Benjamin A. Burton, J. Hyam Rubinstein and Stephan Tillmann, Trans. Amer. Math. Soc. 364:2 (2012), pp. 911932.

static 
Returns a ninetetrahedron minimal triangulation of the Weeks manifold.
The Weeks manifold is the smallestvolume closed hyperbolic 3manifold, with a volume of roughly 0.9427. Note that there are nine minimal triangulations of the Weeks manifold (of course this routine returns just one).

static 
Returns a fourtetrahedron ideal triangulation of the Whitehead link complement.
