Example commands using the symmetro program. This programs will make symmetrohedra and twisters by aligning equilateral polygons with symmetry axes

 Image List

Cuboctahedron  Med    Lrg
 Description : Make a cuboctahedron by aligning triangles with the 3-fold axes of tetrahedral symmetry. Use twister notation. View this model with the command `symmetro -t T[3,3],1,1 | antiview`

Rhombicubo  Med    Lrg
 Description : Make a model like a rhombicuboctahedron by aligning triangles with the 3-fold axes and squares with the 4-fold axes of octahedral symmetry. Scale the squares by 2. Use Kaplan-Hart notation. View this model with the command `symmetro -k o,1,1,0 -r 2 | antiview`

Snub cube  Med    Lrg
 Description : Make a snub cube by aligning triangles with the 3-fold axes and pentagons with the 5-fold axes of icosahedral symmetry. Twist the polygons by 28.53... degrees to produce a snub cube. Use twister notation. View this model with the command `symmetro -t O[4,2],1,1 -a 28.53243959961367 -C f -D | antiview`

Jitterbug  Med    Lrg
 Description : Make a twister, in this example Fuller's jitterbug, by twisting the polygons with -a while suppressing the convex hull with -C s. View this model with the command `symmetro -t T[3,3],1,1 -C s -a 15 | antiview`

Sm st dod  Med    Lrg
 Description : Make an Sn-symmetry twister, in this example with 5/2 axes, and twist the polygons by the axial angle of two edges. View this model with the command `symmetro -s 5:2 -a 2e | antiview`

J34  Med    Lrg
 Description : Make an C-symmetry twister, in this example with 5 axes and Ch symmetry, producing a Johnson pentagonal orthobirotunda. View this model with the command `symmetro -c 5,5,h | antiview`

Near miss  Med    Lrg
 Description : Make an example near-miss symmetrohedron. Double the number of edges of the polygon used for the 3-fold axis, and scale that polygons (which is on axis 1). Set custom colours, which are mapped according to axis number. View this model with the command `symmetro -t I[5,3],1,2 -m map_blue:purple:red:orange -r 1.07046626932,1 | antiview`
