Hi,


Some improvement with this new version (and no new bugs, hopefully :) ).


* Surfaces rendering

* André has improved it a lot

* It's now always clipped by the box

* New property : level of detail. New created surfaces will have level of detail set to 5, which should be a good value. Old ones maybe stored with value equal to 0 : please reset it to 5.


* New tools for pyramid, cones, prisms, cylinders :

* "Extrude to Pyramid/Cone" tool

* "Extrude to Prism/Cylinder" tool (replaces "Right prism" tool)


See below for more details :


* 3D curves/surface syntax :

* Curve[ <Expression>, <Expression>, <Expression>, <Parameter Variable>, <Start Value>, <End Value> ]

* Function[ <Expression>, <Parameter Variable 1>, <Start Value>, <End Value>, <Parameter Variable 2>, <Start Value>, <End Value> ]

* Surface[ <Expression>, <Expression>, <Expression>, <Parameter Variable 1>, <Start Value>, <End Value>, <Parameter Variable 2>, <Start Value>, <End Value> ]


* pyramid

* Pyramid[ <point>, <point>, ..., <point> ] ("Pyramid" tool : create basis + create/select top point)

* Pyramid[ <polygon>, <top point> ] ("Pyramid" tool : select basis + create/select top point)

* Pyramid[ <polygon>, <height> ] ("Extrude to Pyramid/Cone" tool : Drag polygon, or select polygon and enter altitude to create centered pyramid)


* prism :

* Prism[ <point>, <point>, ..., <point> ] ("Prism" tool : create basis + create/select first top point)

* Prism[ <polygon>, <top point> ] ("Prism" tool : select basis + create/select first top point)

* Prism[ <polygon>, <height> ] ("Extrude to Prism/Cylinder" tool : Drag polygon, or select polygon and enter altitude to create right prism)


* cone

* Cone[ <Circle>, <height> ] (right circular cone, "Extrude to Pyramid/Cone" tool : Drag circle, or select circle and enter altitude to create right circular cone)


* cylinder

* Cylinder[ <Cylinder>, <height> ] (right circular cylinder, "Extrude to Prism/Cylinder" tool : Drag circle, or select circle and enter altitude to create right cylinder)


Cheers,

Mathieu
