hi Agnishom,

I've done a few of these over the last two years.  The method uses vector geometry and the cosine rule.  See

Post 30.

I think Wiki also gives the co-ordinates of the points in 3D so you can pick two adjacent faces, get the critical lines and apply the method.

I've got a post to make for MIF, so It'll be a while before I can put all the figures to this, so have a go yourself.  smile


ps.  I have a vague memory that I have done it in a thread, but I couldn't find it.

And the requied angle is 116.57.

I shall be waiting eagerly for someone to explain why
