Beetle model using blobs and cubic_splines parsed from a .x3d via Blender. I
created some simple utilities to convert primitive types from Blender - I was
very happy to see the screen representation of blobs (Mballs) matched pretty
close to the POV result. I included the .exe that convert those types.

Thanks for sharing the model, I've explored and rendered it - looks
good, done very neat, now preparing animation and appropriate lighting.

Thanks, YB.
Sorry the 0,0,0 insertion point is not centered on the beetle's x. I set my
underlay at 0 to positive 100 units. I should shift all the union'd parts x-50
so the model scales better.

No problem, I've fixed it easily, more challenging is to set up good
lighting, but thanks to Thomas, I now have this kit:

Will try to use it.
