    Anyone have ideas about how to draw a circular sector in ObjectData::Draw() similar to how the Rotate axis tool does the same in the Editor? LineStrip looked interesting, but have no clue what the heck this does. I imagine that one can do a series of Polygon3D() calls (?). Seems like a bit of work though.

    Ah, I have it mostly working. Definitely Polygon3D() calls. The main problem is how to handle when the start angle is greater than the end angle (always rotates positively from start to end but the end may be over the 0d mark). :)

    Found it. If the start angle is greater than the end angle, it will definitely be crossing the 0d mark. So, I increment my sub-section slices up to 360, start anew at 0d and go until the end angle. QED.

    Happy camper. :)
