Dear Murray, sorry! That was my mistake. The correct command is imsToGraphics3D. Then you can do the following: Needs["Imtek`Graphics3D`"] c1 = Circle[{1, 2}, 1.2]; Show[ imsToGraphics3D[ Graphics[ {c1 } ], # ] & /@ Range[ 0, 2, 0.2 ], AspectRatio -> Automatic, PlotRange -> All, Boxed -> False] Sorry again. However, you can also use imsExtrudeGraphics. imsExtrudeGraphics[ graphic, { zMin, zMax } ] extrudes a graphics object from zMin to zMax. Show[ Graphics3D[ Thread[ imsExtrudeGraphics[ Circle[{1, 2}, #] & /@ Range[ 1, 2, 0.1 ], { # - 0.1, # + 0.1 } & /@ Range[ 1, 2, 0.1 ] ] ] ], Boxed -> False ] Does this help? Maybe I have not really understood the question ;-) Oliver On Thu, 22 Sep 2005, Murray Eisenberg wrote: > Unless I minsunderstand the poster's question or the functionality of > IMSweb's imsExtrudeGraphics, I don't think the latter answer's the former... > > I thought imsExtrudeGraphics takes a single 2D graphics and places it in > a 3D picture or else extrudes it into 3D. > > What the poster asked was how to take a whole (finite) series of 2D > plots and stack them up.
