|Mac and Windows shareware programs for exploring and constructing paper models of polyhedra. With Poly, you can manipulate a polyhedral solid on the computer and print out a flattened version (a net) which can then be cut out, folded, and taped, to produce a three-dimensional model. Poly will print out nets of 147 different convex polyhedra. Poly provides interfaces in English, Spanish, French, German, Danish, Korean, Polish, Italian, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese, and offers models, posters, and t-shirts for online purchase. Poly Pro includes all of the features of Poly and adds the ability to export polyhedral models using standard 3d file formats (3DMF and DXF).|
