It is never was easer to experiment with polyhedral
constructions than in VRML time. Here you can play with an
installation for making polyhedra compounds.
You can place several polyhedra in one center and rotate
and scale them interactivelly to arrange in desirable configuration.
Not all VRML browsers are capable to dipspalyu this VRML model.
As on May 2001 I know, that Cortona VRML plugin works OK.
For those, who don't have Cortona,
the screen shot shows what
you are missing.
Polyhedra are selected from lists in floating window
in top left corner of screen. They can be rotated directly
by mouse drag. Red button in bottom of VRML screen lock and
unlock all polyhedra together. Cylindrical slider on the
right allows to rescale currently selected polyhedron.
Tip: to rotate polyhedron around axis perpendicular
to screen do circular movement of mouse with pressed button
in opposite direction.
Start Compounds Composer and have fun!
