I'm making .stel files of all the segmetochora, I was wondering if there is any way to embed in a file the ability to ask for a prism number and create something from that prism/antiprism like in the n-gonal prism built-in file. Thanks
It would be great if there was a option to smooth out certain edges in order to create curved shapes. The two adjacent faces could be considered one curved surface. In 4D also you could have curved cells. The inner geometry would still just be an approximation but the view could look curved and the ...
I figured out the problem: I was using the wrong formula to calculate the vertices so the ones I had were creating coplanar faces so that's probably why it was crashing. Once I fixed the formula it worked no problems.
I'm trying to work with .off files to create 4D non-uniforms, but it's way too tedious to try to figure out all the faces and cells that would connect the vertices. I found this program called qhull (www.qhull.org) that will calculate the convex hull and create an .off file from input vertices, but ...
What about an ability to cut off pieces of uniform polyhedra? That would give rise to lots of interesting non-uniforms. Maybe create it by choosing a cross section to cut it at (this could really be a great feature for 3D also!).
I just got Stella4D and I'm trying to play around with it. It seems you covered pretty extensively 4D uniforms, but I had trouble trying to create non-uniforms. I wanted to make an Icosahedral pyramid, for example, so I tried using a J2 pentagonal pyramid as vertex figure to create it, but it only g...

Could there be a way to choose which matching face of existing polyhedron is used for augmentations? Often I find I want to use a different one than which is automatically chosen.
