Hi. I have downloaded a demonstration from Wolframscience called "Automata Generative Network1". It uses a parsing algorithm to make a network from different cellular automata rules. It then uses manipulate to plot the graph. What I would like to get some help with is to make this demostration work without the manipulate command, and instead use a basic GraphPlot3d command which would allow me to start evaluating it from different perspective. If this can be done it will also allow me to export it to dxf, using another script, and then start doing finite element anaysis on it as a structural system - something that interest me a lot since I am and architect/engineer student. Any input or ideas how to do this is very much appreciated. hope you can help me. thanks, jonas
