Thanks to the guys at Retrospec for hosting the file.


The Polymorf3D screen saver displays a shiny colourful 3d shape that morphs and transforms itself over the screen, with an array of rainbow colours in the background.

Configuration options are available that can be used to change the way the screen saver looks to suit your own preferences.

New in Polymorf3D v1.2:

  • Support for wide-screen monitor resolutions

New in Polymorf3D v1.1:

  • loads more configuration options
  • Now you can apply textures to the Polymorf object. You can wrap a texture around the object itself, and you can also provide a "reflection" texture, which will reflect off the object as it rotates.
  • A series of textures are built in, but you can also provide your own images from your hard drive.

Could this be the shiniest object ever seen on a PC? :-)

The Polymorf3D screen saver is available to download now.
