Navigation within the geometry viewer  
 
Some configurations worth mentioningAlways assume Aperture1 = Aperture2 and Symmetry1 = Symmetry2.
 
To learn more about the kaleidocycles you can consult the theory (or the translation in French: théorie). In the second tab of the control panel (Net Info) gives you the information needed to construct the net of one tetrahedron corresponding to your choice of parameters. You have to work a little more to achieve the complete net of the kaleidocycle.
The above applet is based on JavaView, a 3D geometry viewer and numerical software library written in Java.
