Surprise-free setup and clean interface
The installation process does not last very long and it does not offer to download any products that are not actually necessary for the program to actually work. Once you are done with it, you come face to face with a minimal and clear-cut design, as it only consists of a menu bar, a pane to view the created object and another one to aid you in choosing categories of polyhedral.
Moreover, there are some demos incorporated thus ensuring that all user categories can find their way around it, without facing any kind of difficulties.
Types of shapes
This software utility enables you to create several types of polyhedrons, such as platonic solids, prisms and anti-prisms, Johnson solids, Catalan solids, dipyramids and deltohedra, while you can also change the viewing method, so as to explore the shapes from all angles.
Supported file extensions and hotkeys
It is possible to export all your projects to the hard drive, in a GIF, JIF, PCX and WMF file formats, while you can also print them. From the settings panel, you can change the language, as well as the viewing methods. Keyboard shortcuts are incorporated in the program, yet they cannot be customized.
Conclusion and performance
The CPU and memory usage is low at all times, meaning that the system’s performance is not going to be burdened and you can run it alongside other apps without encountering any kind of issues. In addition to that, the response time is good, the interface is suitable to all users and our tests did not reveal any errors or crashes.
Taking all of this into consideration, we can safely say Poly is an efficient and reliable piece of software when it comes to creating and exploring polyhedral shapes.
