You know what else would be nice? A concave version or a module addon.

I am trying to get on a 72 index 72 facets as P 1 but the best I can get is 36 facets starting with 2-4-....

Idea is to get a print out for making a toothless 72 Index on a plastic disk.

Who can help ?

Martin

Not near my PC at present, but can you change to absolute and just enter each index like 1,2,3,4,5,6...etc. upto 72.

Disregard my last post Martin. Absolute is Arbitrary but will only allow you to enter so many digits.

Open a new design, edit the G1 girdle, change the index to 360 and make the symmetry 72 and cut, now change the index back to 72.
Is that what you were looking for?

So the pleochroism feature... Other than a few mentions and animations here, I see no mention of it on the software site.

Is it a coming feature, an add-on module, or what?

I have the latest(?) version - 1.1.0

Thanks

I didn't play with it but you may be able to cut a tier of pavilion facets say at 45 degrees, cut a flat table with a small girdle, set the stone color to an opaque white or grey, and try to render with no tilt. Just a thought

This program is AWESOME. Big kudos Rej. On trial right now, but definitely going to pick it up next payday. Took me maybe 10 minutes of toying around with it, and I was able to enter and manipulate the Marquis cut from Intro to Meetpoint Faceting to work better with the Prasiolite I'm cutting.

Is there a way that I'm just not seeing to resize the L/W of your stone while maintaining all of the cuts though? The rough I've got on the stand is 2.0, and looking at my design in GCS, it's 2.2

You can use the edit functions Scale X-Y to change the L/W ratio. It should tangent the design for you and you can tick the Nearest Index if needed.
