I plan to have several tables full of interesting creative models. I will include my own models, models submitted by you, and a few creative ideas designed by the people at JOVO. The first gallery below (Inspiration Gallery Models) shows some models that can be constructed with JOVO Click 'N Construct toys, as demonstrated in the JOVO Inspiration Booklet. Click on the gallery links to see all the models.
Inspiration Gallery Models - Click on this gallery to see most of the models from the booklet that comes with the Jovo Click 'N Construct bins. There are many interesting ideas for models, from beginner to advanced. There are quite a few "cheats" in there (models that are not quite accurate polyhedra, but the flexibility of the pieces lets you make them anyway), but they are all fun to make. If you want to see just the pictures of these shapes, check out Inspiration Gallery Pics

Thanks to Robert Webb for his very cool "Stella" program. I have used it extensively to generate VRML files for my site. It is a great tool for rapid exploration of augmentations and excavations of polyhedra (among other things).
Thanks also to Melinda Green and Don Hatch for their excellent Tyler Web Application. This free web tool lets you do great flat designs with polygons in just about any arrangement.
