stellate(p, h)

Parameters

p

-

POLYGONS structure or a list of POLYGONS structures

h

-

(optional) height of stellates; default is 2

Description

• 

This command creates a stellate for each of the polygons in a given POLYGONS structure.  The parameter h controls the height of the stellates.  If h is greater than 1, then the stellate is directed away from the origin; otherwise, the stellate is directed towards the origin.

• 

The stellate command produces a POLYGONS object, which can be used in a PLOT3D data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.
