The -F option of off_align aligns a face on the
brick with a face on the base
and then uses it to augment or excavate the base model (the polyhedra
are joined and the bonding faces removed). This operation can be
repeated symmetrically with the -y option.
In this example the base polygon of a pentagonal
pyramid is aligned with a face of a dodecahedron. An alignment
number is chosen that causes the pyramid to lie inside the dodecahedron,
producing an excavation. The bonding operation is repeated with the
symmetry of the base model by specifying -y full.
