The arcadeEngine page clearly talks wireframe Objects. No hidden
gotchas I can see there. If there is any section on the page that can
be misread I would like to set that straight, as it is no good idea
to promise more than one can give. What AE does is providing the
functions to handle 3D pointlists, manipulate them (e.g. rotation
around all 3 axes) and transform them to 2d screen representations,
either in Isometric or 3D view. Those calculations can be used to
either create wireframe objects or pseudo 3D representations using
bitmaps. If you are searching for rendered, textured 3D Objects AE is
not of much help. Just want to be clear on that, So if you think the
AE page is not clear enough in this respect, please let me know.
All the best,
