Thanks, Guy. Thinking about it some more, I was able to do the scheme I wanted with the snub cube, which also has five faces meeting at each vertex. But the difference, I think, is that since the triangles are arranged about square faces (with an even number of edges), I can use an alternating patte...

Coloring of Snub Dodecahedron

Hi all: I've been using Great Stella for a few years now, slowly building a collection of polyhedra. I'm on the last of the Archimedean solids, the snub dodecahedron. I'm OCD about coloring scheme, so I have a specific desire to color it a certain way. My strategy is to use the 4-color dodecahedron ...

Never mind. Apparently, no one is minding the store.

I've been browsing the threads, and run across several of Dinogeorge's postings that reportedly had some fantastic images. He hosted them on AOL Hometown, which was shut down in October of 2008. Is he still around? If so, Dinogeorge, can you re-host your images somewhere else? I'd love to see what y...

Polyhedron scaling behavior

Hi all: I'm relatively new to Great Stella, and have begun making some models; the Platonics and some of the Archemedians. I want them all roughly the same size, so I'm careful to set the base polyhedron radius to be the same for all of the models (3in, in my case). I've noticed that every time I st...

I've only been using Stella for a couple of weeks, but I find myself wishing for printed tabs, as well. For me, the difficulty lies in predicting the taper angles at the tab ends so that the tabs at a given vertex don't interfere with each other. I have managed, so far, using trial and error, but as...
