Pretty self-explanatory. This added function would let you make truncations at every vertex of the polyhedron on the screen. The truncation-plane would be perpendicular to a line between the polyhedron's center, and the vertex in question. Truncation "depth" being at the control of the user might be interesting, as well, although making that user-friendly would be tricky.

Here's another idea: if you use this "truncate" function with a vertex selected, then the truncation only happens at that vertex. This could create some new ways to explore polyhedral symmetry-types, and how they relate to one another.

Hi Rob,

'Fraid I am still firmly wedded to Linux and can't be ***ed with WINE so my copy of Stella is equally firmly parked for the foreseeable.

I would think that all the basic operations one encounters - truncation, bevelling, runcination, etc. - would be worth implementing, if only to help us learn-by-doing what they actually involve.
