Angles for R.I. = 1.54
194 facets
16-fold, mirror-image symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000 T/W = 0.118 T/L = 0.118
H/W = 1.483
Vol./W^3 = 0.587

 

Addition # 14 – NOTE: A temporary girdle can be cut using the P1 settings. This is not hard to cut but will take some work. I like it in lightly saturated materials.
