Polyhedron Net Animations

After way too much coding time I have finally managed to fulfil an idea I had years ago of animating nets becoming polyhedra (folding and unfolding) for a few select polyhedra:

Re: Polyhedron Net Animations

That's awesome.

I do not understand the drag feature...

It let's you rotate the shape by dragging ... but you have to drag the actual shape (not the background) so the mouse sometimes "slips off" the shape as it moves.

Re: Polyhedron Net Animations

Hi;

Very nice graphics. The cube seems to distort when viewed with anything other than glass or beams. Is it just me?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

It is probably a visual effect due to perspective, the coords are the same. I have also found that "Glass" is the best for me.

Okay, thanks.
