Angles for R.I. = 1.54
114 facets
8-fold symmetry
96 index
L/W = 1.000 T/W = 0.207 T/L = 0.207
H/W = 0.924

Addition # 14 - NOTE: A temporary girdle can be cut at 90 degrees using the P1 settings. The tables can be left off. This works well in about any material. I like to cut it in medium sized materials.
