Re: Genus-41 Stewart toroid

Another great model, Rob. What's your opinion of "Adventures among the Toroids" ?

Re: Work in progress

Awe-inspiring! What will the radius be? I've seen several of your models in the past, but previously, I've only considered the holes in the faces to be decorative. Having spent a few minutes studying the current image, I see that the holes also permit a better appreciation of the structure of the po...

Re: Constructing models with transparent faces?

Rob, Yes, you are correct - its UHU, not UHO. I just experimented with a piece of plastic which I cut from the box containing the plastics straws. It is that tough, transparent stuff that feels similar to the shrink-wrap plastic that you find on many items these days - difficult to get off unless yo...

Re: Constructing models with transparent faces?

Rob, Funny you should raise this now as I'd been thinking about it the other day. I posted a reply on a different topic recently, on the gluing together plastic drinking straws. If you can get your hand son it (not too literally), try UHO Por; it seems to work well with many materials, but especiall...

Re: Constructing a shape as near to a sphere as possible

You might try contacting hamp856 - he has posted some wonderful wooden models here in the past, and some of them are spheres.

Re: Showing vector angles

I just tried gluing two plastic straws together using UHU Por and it worked very well - a nice strong bond without any melting. I didn't try anything clever, I just glued them side by side with a patch of adhesive about 1 cm long. I think Por is great. I bought it originally to stick together expand...

You select the heptagrammic face, hit: scale->stretch (non-uniform scale)..., enter the desired value (scale by or set value to ...) and "perpendicular to selected face". Ulrich Thanks Ulrich, that did the trick nicely, though I didn't select the "perpendicular..." option. Somehow I thought you mig...

How to Distort Heptogrammic Pyramid

How can I reduce the height of Heptogrammic Pyramid 1 in Stella's database so that the pyramid is much flatter ?

With Stella, how can you set up the colour arrangement described by Guy ?
