Re: queation exporting quaternions from mathematica 5


Hi,

a) a quaternion is not a 3d shape and it is not complicated
b) Mathematica can read and write DXF and STL files
c) if you install MathGL3d from

http://phong.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/~kuska/mathgl3dv3/

you can export VRML, POVRay, QuickDraw3D and in the upcomming version
Alias|Wavefront 3d files.

Regards
  Jens
