thanks. It appears to be the Crease command. I created a box, removed the
crease and it imported OK (now I have to work through how to save the
scenery so that it gets picked up by the Sim!). As I said, I'm new to this
(as in just the last 4 days) and have no experience with plib.
Is there a list anywhere of the AC3d commands that plib doesn't support?
