I have recently added rendering of polyhedrons (tetrahedrons and
octahedrons) to Jmol. They can be rendered as solid or translucent.

The code has not yet been officially released, but is currently in
prerelease test phase.

There is not much documentation either, but there are only a few commands
and it is pretty straightforward.
