We consider several variants of SU(3) partial dynamical symmetry in relation to quadrupole shapes in nuclei. Explicit construction of Hamiltonians with such property is presented in the framework of the interacting boson model (IBM), including higher order terms, and in its proton–neutron extension (IBM-2). The cases considered include a single prolate-deformed shape with solvable ground and γ or β bands, coexisting prolate-oblate shapes with solvable ground bands, and aligned axially-deformed proton–neutron shapes with solvable symmetric ground and γ bands and mixed-symmetry scissors and γ bands.
