Re: Something like Gouraud/Phong Shade for Polygons in Mathematica?

No, AFAIK Mathematica's graphics share the PostScript rendering model. This
only allows flat fills, not gradient (e.g. for Gouraud).

The evolution to a PDF-like rendering model, with more sophisticated fills,
would be most welcome, IMHO.
