a question popped up on the papervision3D mailing list the other day about using the lines3D class to trace a 3D object. i found the idea fascinating, so i whipped up this little demo to demonstrate how simple it actually was. i started out by creating a simple cylinder with a wide base and small top, and setting its visibility to false. then creating my lines3D object. finally in the render loop i create a new line3D that connects each vertice. by checking to see in a counter variable is less than the total object vertice count ((box.geometry.vertices.length)), and adding a new line3D if the counter is less than that, or deleting all the lines and starting over...

the child of insomnia and fontlab. a few months ago i was having a rather lengthy battle with insomnia, so to help bide my time, i decided to make a font from scratch. i awoke the next morning on the couch with a discharged laptop, and forgot all about my fontography exploits. a month later i was looking in my font dev folder and found this. so i spent this weekend kerning, resizing letters, and making special characters to complete the font. the font contains a full set of A-Z capz only, digits, and most special characters.
