Can the edges and vertices of any convex polyhedron be projected without overlap onto two dimensions?

They can be projected onto a surrounding sphere (surface). Can convex polyhedra be projected onto any internal point or surface without overlap of edges or vertices? All of this seems like Gaussian surfaces to me. A cube can be a Gaussian surface, why not any convex polyhedron?

How about if the [complex] polyhedron is embedded in a topological space?
