Re: A 17-faced whatsit...

Yes it can, here's how (you need Great Stella for this) Start with a pentagonal prism: https://s15.postimg.cc/58y0auqvr/image.png If you want to change the pyramid height before starting, use "Scale->Stretch (Non-Uniform Scale)" Select a pentagonal face Use "Poly->Augment Polyhedron" (keyboard short...

Re: Zometool

There's a description about what the colours represent here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zome#Characteristics_of_Zometool One problem is that many shapes couldn't be made with Zometools because the edges wouldn't lie in the required directions. I guess there could be an additional colour for these...

Re: Zometool

I don't see how the word direction makes sense here. Sounds like maybe you just mean all edges of the same length. Is that right? I think Zome rods are the same colour if they're the same length. But yes I don't currently have an option for that.

Re: What is a step prism?

Here's some further discussion from Dr. Richard Klitzing: Let's reduce to 4D. Then you'd start with an (n,n)-duoprism. That one could be represented by its set of square faces, which altogether form the surface of a torus. When cut open you'll get an n x n grid of squares. +---+---+---+--- | | | | +...

Re: Zometool

Zometool rendering is an interesting idea, but probably won't happen. I just don't have the time unless there's a huge interest in it, which I suspect there isn't. If I understand your second question correctly, then you can already achieve this with "Color->Edge Colors->Color Edges Same If Parallel...

Re: What is a step prism?

It was so long ago I worked on this that I really don't remember how they're defined, and possibly didn't understand it fully then! If you understand what gyrochora are, then these are their duals, so should have the dual properties. I asked around though, and got a reply from Dr. Richard Klitzing (...

Re: Number of paid downloads

New version still not released yet, as I decided to look at a few more things. And I'm going away for a couple of weeks next week, so not so soon after all. Your computer should be back from the shop by then. If you want to see how the current guy taking over the records board does it though, he cre...

Re: How to exit Flippant

Thanks for the positive feedback. The navigation bar at the bottom of most modern Android screens is hidden during game-play. This happens on many games and some other apps too. Just swipe up from the bottom of the screen to bring it back temporarily. I might see about keeping it visible, as I don't...

Re: Number of paid downloads

Sorry, looks like I never answered the original question. The answer won't be very satisfying though, because the answer is that I'd rather not make sales figures public. I'll just say "not enough". Unfortunately I'm more interested in creating these things than I am in promoting them, so I never ca...
