Hello all,
There was a post on here several years ago for the same file, but it seems it
drifted off on a tangent.  The file I am looking for is called blocks.inc, it
contains a macro for rendering a pile of wooden alphabet blocks (they kind
children play with), you supply a word or phrase and it is spelled out on 3D
wooden blocks.  The file has nothing to do with Lego blocks, these blocks are
three-dimensional, six sided square blocks with a letter on each "face".

I found a few rare links via Google, but they all lead to dead ends.  I am sure
this file is squirreled away somewhere, it is a very useful scene file and I
would greatly appreciate if anyone still has a copy of it, as mine has
disappeared into thin smoke.

Check this thread. It has links to a couple of versions of blocks.inc

Thank you, thank you!  Now I guess I need to figure out why I could not find
that on my own.....
