What's Polygon Crest?
This program is a polygon editor. Maybe more commonly called a
polygon modeler. You can call whichever comfortable for you. The
main purpose is to build aircraft and ground visual models for YS
FLIGHT SIMULATOR, but you can use it for making general polygonal
models. If you make a correct solid model, you can export the data
for 3D printing, for example. I wanted to make it easy to create
aircraft models, so this program can quickly make a popular
airfoils, and extrude along the wing leading and trailing edges. It
also has basic boolean operations and rounding functions as well.

I will use the donated money for upgrading my developing
environment, buying books for learning new programming techniques,
maintaining and adding contents in YSFLIGHT.COM. Thank you for your

- Digitally signed Mac OSX binary. You should be able to
run the program without warning. If your setting only allows
App Store applications, you will need to change the security
setting to allow App Store & digitally signed by known developers
(or something like that.)
- Linux binary is bundled in the Mac OSX package. You can
run LinuxInstaller.py in the zip file, which will create an icon
on the desktop. If it works well, I'm going to do the same
- Now YSFLIGHT shares the same data structure of dynamic model
(.DNM) with PolygonCrest. From the next version on, if you
can open the .DNM file with PolygonCrest, it should (is supposed
to) appear the same in YSFLIGHT.
- Imprinting: You can imprinting a polygon or a constraint
edge to a nearby polygons by selecting a polygon and then select
- Sewing: You can select two vertices and select
Edit->Local Operations->Sew between two vertices. Vertices
will be created between the selected vertices and polygons along
the path will be split.
- Polygon Crest for Linux: You can really use the system
clipboard. (Now it's closed inside Polygon Crest program)
- Input/Output of Wavefront .OBJ format files.
- Add "Recently Used Files"
- Color Palette dialog.
- Polygon Crest for Windows: Erased a false error message on
start up. (It only appeared when I build in a release
configuration, and I didn't notice :-P)
First release! Version 20140716. I wanted to add more
features. But, if I wait until I finish all the features that I
want to add, it's going to take infinity. I decided to make it
open now. I'll keep developing and newer versions will be
