Skipping the DXF

trumpetto
Hi, I'm very excited about this language. It's just what I (as a programmar) was missing to create 3D stuff.

I have a few questions;

- can I read from an external textfile to, say, get coordinates?
- Can I create a 2D shape and extrude from there. Thus skipping the need for a DXF file?

Thanks very much, Trumpetto
