Despite the necessity of producing high-quality documents comprising all aspects of electronic publishing, there is still no system available that can generate and integrate two-dimensional (2D) graphics, three-dimensional (3D) graphics and high-quality text electronically. This situation becomes especially critical in the area of technical documentation where graphics as well as text play a major role. DaScript 3D introduces 3D extensions able to handle and integrate 2D and 3D graphics as well as text in one tool. Based on the page description language PostScript, DaScript 3D offers the power of PostScript on the one hand, and, on the other hand, all the characteristics and advantages of a 3D scene generation system.
