Computer Graphics World is collecting images on the "History of the Teapot"

The deadline was yesterday for submissions, but if you have some spectacular
image [tiff or jpeg], especially historical, you can always inquire to the
person below if it can be submitted.

In any case, I assume they will have an article in CGW eventually.....

[...] perhaps we should dress up our CAD teapot?


	Teapot model demonstrating proper hierarchy of CAD nodes: CADLayer,
CADAssembly, CADPart, and then CADFace.

Hmmm, maybe we should think about a Smart Teapot including various use-case
- assembly, disassembly visualization
- checking online inventory
- publish/print (e.g. Shapeways or direct to 3D printer)
- operating procedures, hyperlinked and animated
- repair procedures, hyperlinked and animated
- e-book learning about this object

This kind of activity would be great for the next stage of CAD working group
efforts:  building examples that demonstrate X3D CAD models in action.

all the best, Don
