Other truncations

Postby Plasmath » Fri May 21, 2021 10:38 pm

I wanted to make some animations of truncation rotations for different kinds of truncations, so that they can be visualized easier.
First, here's the animation for truncation (You may have to click on the image to see it).

And here's cantellation.

I wanted to do this for bitruncation and cantitruncation too, but I can't seem to find a well-defined definition of either, other then 'truncation beyond rectification' and 'truncating its rectification'. Can someone explain the definitions of them to me, and other types of truncation in general? Thanks!

Sorry, I used the same link for both images on accident. It should work now if you click on the image.
