Thanks Robert,

I understand what you are saying about dividing the dihedral angles. However, I am still perplexed. If you subtract from one Dihedral angle you have to add that to it's matching comp ...

Thanks, I see the objects you build. What material do you use. How do you cut the angles necessary?

I am experimenting with a product called "Sign Foam" which is "high density polyu ...
