Good work on the mechanisms!
Awesome details. nice work you've done here.

btw. what is the key to make such perfect details?
I made the details using other programs, saving out as SVG, and then converting the SVG into .phn with a Python script I wrote.

I used Inkscape, an OpenSource shape editing program. It saves out to 'Simple SVG' which my very basic script can convert to .phn. There are restrictions: Phun can only handle polygons with straight lines. Fortunately, Inkscape has: Effects->Modify Path->Flatten Beziers.

I've put .exe version of my script on the web. I can't put a link to it in this comment: see the Formum thread if you are interested:)
I've since released that svg2phn is a much better way to get svg into Phun than my hacky script! Note that it is really only svg2->phn at the moment 'cause it doesn't support converting version 2 phn to svg.
very slow:) :o
