As of Version 12.0, all the functionality of the PolyhedronOperations package is built into the Wolfram System. >>

Stellate[expr]

replaces each polygon in graphics expression expr by a pyramid, with the polygon as its base.

Stellate[expr,ratio]

uses a stellation ratio ratio.

Details

  • To use Stellate, you first need to load the Polyhedron Operations Package using Needs["PolyhedronOperations`"].
  • Stellate[expr] uses a stellation ratio of 2.
  • Stellate[PolyhedronData[poly]] creates a stellated polyhedron.
  • Stellation ratios less than 1 give concave figures.
