Very possible. It looks like the tetrahedron and icosahedron are the only
ones that are on edge. I suppose the tetrahedron should rest on a face and
the icosahedron should balance on a point. I would just need to re-orient
the coordinates. Luckily, this is easy to do because Moray can convert the
object to mesh in any orientation.
I'm actually toying with yet another idea... The shapes use the mesh2
format, which fits nicely into UDO. What I am thinking is allowing for the
tessellation of a UDO object. The only problem with that idea is Moray will
crash when I exceed the size of the vertex array. Thus I would need to
re-declare the arrays as dynamic. Also, there is the the potential problem
of people supplying incompatible shapes. I don't even want to know what
would happen if somebody tried to tessellate chess.udo.
