Printing nets

Post by peterash3@gmail.com » Thu Nov 28, 2013 2:40 pm

Hi,

I have downloaded Small Stella DEMO. If I buy Small Stella, it will be (at least right now) just for printing out nets for use in my geometry class. I printed out the icosahedron, and felt the default line setting was too thin for my purposes. I see that Display > Vertex and Edge Options lets me change the width of the lines on the screen, but it makes no difference when I print. Can I print with wider lines, and if so, how?

Hi,

Sorry for slow reply, I missed seeing your message till now.

When you go to print, a dialog box comes up with various options. In the Line Widths section, change Edges to some other number to make the lines on nets thicker.

Yeah, printers are hi-res and a 1-pixel line can be too thin. I often set this to 3 or even 6 or more on darker paper.

Rob.
