iso_delta  isohedral deltahedra
Usage: iso_delta [options] polyhedron
Make Isohedral Deltahedra in OFF format. The polyhedron may be specified
by its list number, or the (start of the) name of the polyhedron.
Additional examples can be generated using d or c paramters.

Coloring Options (run 'off_util H color' for help on color formats)
f <mthd> mthd is face coloring method using color in map (default: c)
key word: none  sets no color
c  unique coloring for each compound constituent
s  symmetric coloring (should always be one color)
T <tran> face transparency. valid range from 0 (invisible) to 255 (opaque)
m <maps> color maps for all elements to be tried in turn (default: compound)
