      I've build something similar but with a generalized version of the supershape formular, so you can create supertoruses and supershells too. http://surfacelib.googlecode.com/files/superDup

      Hello Ali,

      Getting addicted to your supershape explorer.

      I used some of your images on our http://www.genicap.com website which I updated very recently (still have to fill in some blanks on the texts)

       Hi Ali

      It’s said “Could not create the Java Virtual Machine”
      I have googled around, could not find the cure.

      P.S, I am using winxp sp2.

      Any suggestions?

      Thanks
