.STL File / 3D model: POLYHEDRA VIA CONWAY OPERATORS IN OPENSCAD

Conway operators allow a wide assortment of polyhedra to be generated as transformations of the Platonic solids. This openSCAD script implements all the operators + George Hart's propellor + few other additional functions, for example one to generate a cutout shell used in the samples

The script uses language features [ concat, list comprehension, let() ] only available in versions since late 2014

The sample solids are
GD - the Catalan solid Pentagonal hexecontahedron
emD - controlled to make a cushion shape
ccD - Goldberg(0,4) modulated to make Piet Hein's superegg
tktI - Goldberg(3,3) ditto equally with hexagons cutout
t10k10tD is a favorite of George Hart whose work is an inspiration

The openSCAD script is on Github https://github.com/KitWallace/openscad/blob/master/conway.scad
