m3D package

Last modification: december 14, 2005


The m3D package is an extension to plain MetaPost designed
for 3 dimensional graphics. 


Standard LaTeX licence even if I also like the
``Feel-free-to-send-me-a-postcard'' one.

Brief description of the files

*  mpinputs: MetaPost input files.
   o  m3Dplain.mp (the very core of m3D, reading
      it is better than read any manual)
   o  m3Dlib01.mp (a small library where one cand find
      some common mathematical objects)
   o  One may add here new libraries.

*  manual: a draft for a manual.
   o  m3Dmanual.pdf (to be read directly)
   o  m3Dmanual.ps  (to be read directly)
   o  m3Dmanual.tex (the text [plain-TeX]),
   o  m3Dmanual.mp  (illustrations, this helps also to understand
      how to use m3D),
   o  m3Dmanmac.tex (personal plain-TeX format)

*  trials: various things using m3D. Try them.

*  gallery: a small gallery of still or animated images.

m3D – Ex­ten­sion of plain for 3D graph­ics

M3D is an­other ex­ten­sion of plain for 3 di­men­sional graph­ics. While the au­thor claims it should not be re­garded as sta­ble, he be­lieves it has value sim­ply as a source of ideas for those who wish to im­ple­ment 3D graph­ics in .

The pack­age (sta­ble or not) ex­hibits some in­ter­est­ing abil­i­ties, both in the pack­age man­ual and in the gallery that comes with the dis­tri­bu­tion.
