The main program Make_Icosahedron makes icosahedra of type 1 class 2 frequency f. Unfortunately, only even frequencies are supported since odd frequencies do not have a cutting plane.

There are options to plot the icosahedron in 3d.

Found this really useful, and very simple to use immediately. Thank you!


I get 91 nodes for f=4. Isn't the number of nodes equal to (5f^2+1)? In this case it should be 81 nodes, right?
