PostForum: Stella Feature Requests   Posted: Wed May 15, 2013 12:12 am   Subject: Quick Color Chooser
Just getting back into paper modeling, and thought of what I think would be a very useful feature.

The coloring tools are currently usable, but a little tough to operate. I propose a simple recolo ...

Very pretty! Now, of course, you have to make the cube+icosahedron model to go with it. I once had the idea of making all 10 possible combinations of platonic solid compounds, but only got around to ...

PostForum: Stella Forum   Posted: Tue Feb 10, 2009 7:10 pm   Subject: "Open-Faced" Polyhedra
A few months ago I designed and built two models of polyhedral stellations with sections cut away from their faces (so that only the true edges of the polyhedron would connect- actually only parts of ...

If you take a screenshot of the nets though, they could come out any size, as you can zoom in and out. When printing they are always printed the correct size depending on the scale set via items on th ...

I have been using Great Stella for a while (about 6 months or so) now, and I absolutely love it. Since I use it a lot, though, I have found a few things that I think could be improved in the next ver ...

Marcelteun, have you ever considered building the "inverse" of your fractal octahedron? It would be basically the same shape but with tetrahedral cells and with octahedral shaped spaces bet ...

ISTR that these two are duals of each other. So you need only load one and view its dual to get both.
Actually, not so. I really have no idea why, but the duals of these polyhedra on Great Stella lo ...

Is it possible to import VRML files into stella? Or is there a "roundabout way" of doing it, such as importing VRML files into a different program and then exporting them as a file type tha ...

How would one get the Császár and Szilassi Polyhedra in stella? They are two polyhedra that I would like to build for my dad for Father's day. The Császár polyhedron is the only other polyhedron (be ...

PostForum: Polyhedron Models   Posted: Thu May 22, 2008 5:30 pm   Subject: Paper model choices. Scissors/knife? Single/double tabs? etc
I considered squeezing layers together a long time ago, but I was a bit afraid that this would be too inaccurate


I started doing this recently for my Great Icosahedron. I don't think that it was ...

Another advantage of the cuboctahedron is that its move could be thought of as a cross between the bishop's diagonal and the the rook's othogonal move. Another idea that I had was to use the snub dis ...

I had the idea a while ago of building a chess set with the regular polyhedra as the pieces. Only one problem: six chess piece types, five regular polyhedra. Unsurprisingly, the knight was the odd o ...

PostForum: Stella Feature Requests   Posted: Wed Apr 02, 2008 5:30 pm   Subject: Tabs?
I think that a tool to tell you how to fit tabs inside the model without any conflict would be very handy. For example, I had to trash a vertex part for my great icosahedron because the tabs were to ...

Thanks for the replies, guys!

I just noticed that the base+dual thing also works for the Kepler-Poinsot solids (dodecadodecahedron and small ditrigonal icosidodecahedron/great icosidodecahedron, po ...
