I had the program running on a WinXP box and had a hard drive crash (or perhaps a corruption of the Win install, and a failing drive, whatever, it wouldn't boot and I could not reinstall). I was not ...

I started making a Rhombicosidodecahedron model from cherry wood, cut out pieces on my CNC machine and made some jigs to hold the pieces to get the bevel angles cut. I assembled the pieces and disco ...

Well that little tutorial from RobertW worked. It seems there are considerable features in the program that are not entirely intuitive to the casual user.

I'll see how this compares with the scrip ...

Oh, I forgot to say I milled up some cherry to 3/8" thick, so that is what I will be using for my models. That is a good thickness to give some edge grip for gluing, I might work on a way to do ...

That is great -- thank y'all for the help. I'm off to cut some pentagons and triangles and squares today, and get some jigs made to do the beveling. After I see how that works then I will start on t ...

Well it looks like Ulrich might have my answer, if I knew how to do what he explains I need to do. I am a total beginner with Stella4D so you might need to give me a step-by-step tutorial. No, you a ...

The 3D model appears as (ta-da!) a 3D frame in Cambam, which would be OK if I wanted to cut the whole shape out of a big block of wood, which is not really doable for anything very large on my machine ...

AH! Play time with the full program this morning. funfunfun. Very Happy I even learned to do offs. I can export a dxf of the 3D model and open it in Cambam, that is cool.

In Stella4D I can see the va ...

Yesterday evening I wrote a little Cambam script for the facets of a deltoidal hexacontahedron using hard angle values as generated by Stella4D, and scalable using midradius length input and a "b ...

Just bought Stella4D, will be using it to cut facets on my CNC machine thence to make wood realizations of the various shapes. I build furniture after a career of sorts in the high-tech sector, engin ...

I just purchased the Stella4D program, have been fooling around with the demo version for a week or so. Very neat stuff.

Anyway, what I am going to do is make facet pieces with my CNC machine I bu ...
