First, welcome. Secondly, I was glad to see a new Oracle Press book on JavaFX first of all. Thirdly, you had mentioned rendering 3D. Would y'all see JavaFX fitting in a space to do things like, say, import iges or STEP neutral files? I presume probably not the best solution, but.......?

Hi Brian,

I don't have experience with the type of project you describe. You might be able to find the answer by looking at classes such as JavaFX.scene.shape.Shape3D. You will also want to look at JavaFX's support for transforms (including 3-D transforms). For example, you can rotate a 3-D object. You might also find chapters 6 and 7 of my book helpful. Chapter 6 covers effects and transforms and Chapter 7 covers animation, which you might also find useful.

Thanks, Mr. Schildt, will do. I figured that would be the case. I'm sure there are better ways than what I've hacked, ha! So yes, I'll have to check out the book....

Thanks again.
