PostForum: Stella Forum   Posted: Sat Jul 16, 2011 2:27 pm   Subject: Questions about Stellations and Stellation Criterion
This thought started a few days ago when I thought I'd try and export images of each stellation of the icosidodecahedron. I noticed there wasn't anything out there listing each one, as there is for th ...

I've stumbled upon this little chestnut a couple of times now. I load up (or create a model) in stella and go to view and print nets, and the nets are not arranged according the the colour scheme chos ...

PostForum: Stella Feature Requests   Posted: Wed Jul 13, 2011 9:51 am   Subject: Ability to EXPORT an ANIMATION of 3d and 4d rotations
After playing around with the 4D models in Stella last night, I too would love to be able to export animations - especially of the 4D rotations, etc.

I experimented a little using camstudio, and go ...

PostForum: Polyhedra   Posted: Mon Jun 20, 2011 2:20 pm   Subject: Icosahedon 5 compound - anyone tried making one?
I've just started building the compound of 5 dodecahedra, and thought it might be nice to make its dual, the compound of 5 icosahedra, as well. The pair look like they'd make a nice set.

I've notic ...

I'm in the process of building a website, part of which I want to use to display images of polyhedron models I've built.
I thought it might be nice to include the nets as PDF's so people could then p ...

Hi Daniela,

Have you tried compiling using WINE? Maybe you could experiment using the demo version of Stella to see if it works.

I took a moment to learn the .OFF file format, and decided to 'write' my own polyhedron model.
It's a sort of octagrammic bipyramid. Might be useful for creating Christmas Tree decorations.
The file ...

Just finished my latest model. It is a compound of the small stellated, great and great stellated dodecahedron.
This was also the first time I used double tabs, so it represents a new development in ...

Thanks Rob, that did the trick. Very Happy

I've noticed compounds of some stellations of the icosahedron seem quite prone to this.

The cut is a good workaround, and I decided to print out a copy of t ...

I just tried to create this model (as an exercise) on stella4d. Though the compound was relatively straightforward to create, I noticed the net wasn't looking right.
Shouldn't the net be a hexagonal ...

I used to build polyhedron models as a childhood hobby, then stopped when sixthform college and university life took over. Now I've gotten back into it.

Still experimenting with materials and techn ...

Nice. Will you be making one from paper? Wink


If only I could, but I fear it would take too long and seriously test my patience to the limit.
