    Abstract

    This article introduces you to the basics of 3D files in general and the 3D Metafile (3DMF), QuickDraw 3D's native 3D format, in particular. It shows how you can use AppleScript to easily convert a raw 3D text file into a 3DMF readable by the QuickDraw 3D Viewer or any other QuickDraw 3D compatible application. With this knowledge you can make hand-written data or data exported by a spreadsheet or database application suitable for visualisation as standalone 3D models.
