I love it when a geometry library has options like rotate towards, Vector3 to

euler angles, Distance, lerp, and similar options. Is there any chance you

could add these functions or an openscad file because they are not easy to

code them to openscad, it's would be awesome to find a heavy geom functions

library and just copy it into openscad engine:

Vector3 modules

Angle

Returns the angle in degrees between from and to.

ClampMagnitude

Returns a copy of vector with its magnitude clamped to

maxLength.

Cross

Cross Product of two vectors.

Distance

Returns the distance between a and b.

Dot

Dot Product of two vectors.

Lerp

Linearly interpolates between two vectors.

LerpUnclamped

Linearly interpolates between two vectors.

Max

Returns a vector that is made from the largest components of two

vectors.

Min

Returns a vector that is made from the smallest components of two

vectors.

MoveTowards

Moves a point current in a straight line towards a target point.

Normalize

OrthoNormalize

Makes vectors normalized and orthogonal to each other.

Project

Projects a vector onto another vector.

ProjectOnPlane

Projects a vector onto a plane defined by a normal orthogonal

to the plane.

Reflect

Reflects a vector off the plane defined by a normal.

RotateTowards

Rotates a vector current towards target.

Scale

Multiplies two vectors component-wise.

Slerp

Spherically interpolates between two vectors.

SlerpUnclamped

Spherically interpolates between two vectors.

SmoothDamp

Gradually changes a vector towards a desired goal over time.
