Hi all

I've put the Platonic, Archimedean and Catalan solids on the object collection.
More to follow eventually!

Each group is a single include file, and each polyhedron can be invoked using
one of three different macros - textured faces, non-textured faces, and
edges/vertices. The macros will sit the shapes on the x-z plane if specified.

Please see the html file and the example scene file within the download for more
specific information.

Please let me know if there are any issues so I can fix them!

Bill

Any plans on adding the stellated versions of the shapes?

I'm sitting on the 59 icosahedra and the kepler-poinsot polyhedra... they just
need obj-lib-ifying (as do the Johnson solids). They'll get there at some point,
I just need to find the time! Seeing as there's interest, I'll try and crack on
soon. After that I'll move on to converting more - I've particularly got my eye
on the compound polyhedra.

Blame a combination of RL and Bethesda Softworks for the delay :)

Sorry Bill, I just couldn't resist ;-)

Your include file is great, though! I'm really looking forward to your 
posting of these files.

LOL

That honestly hadn't occurred to me, and usually I can spot a double-entendre
from up to 6km away in long grass... :)

Thanks for the comment, I shall try to expedite further polyhedra!

  Sedulously eschew obfuscatory hyperverbosity and prolixity, espouse
elucidation.

Diligently reject confusing over-use of words and longwindedness.   Encourage
understanding.

That was fun :)
