Glad you like it.

Right, PS-Snapshot can't deal with smooth shaded polygons, which
is what you're trying to use.  Doing smooth shading in postscript
is a pain -- there's two ways of doing it: creating huge PS files
or creating really slow PS files.  A developmental version of
Geomview has the capability of saving PostScript (actually EPS)
files.  An example snapshot of your object is at:


Unfortunately we don't have Alphas here at the center, so I can't
provide you with a Alpha binary of this version of Geomview.
However, if you have access to a Sun or SGI, I can give you a
binary for that.  If you're feeling really brave, you could
attempt to compile a developmental source tree (you should have
experience with C and building large programs).  Let me know what
would be best.
