Not that easy. Even after two hours I could nor get the result, I suppose through lack of real understanding on my part. Please see my remarks in your text. it can be constructed quickly in the following way: You choose the triangular prism (hit 3,4,4 and ok in the search field). You put this into m...

Compound of 3 Rhombic Prisms

Robert Austin excited me with his model of a compound of 3 Rhombic Prisms made with Stella. I asked him how he made it but he answered that he had no idea.... intuitive action so to say. That excited me even more and after a lot of work I found out by plane geometry (quite interesting geometry) all ...

You can export this as an avi (best settings for me:Cinepak codec, oversampling 3),open the avi in f.e. Windows Movie...

Hallo Robert ! Many thanks for your very precise description. Within 10 minutes I had the models rolling over the screen, giving me a thrill as never allover because it was the first time I 'created' something in Stella. Now there is a lot of learning to do but with f.e. your fantastic models of pri...
