    Hey all,
    _<_img border="0" src= "http://www.cg.tuwien.ac.at/~mccool/c4dprob.gif"_>_
    I must be able to do what you see above -- extend two lines from a single point "b".
    Any help on how to do this is appreciated.
    If there is no such thing as "reusing" point b, I will need to write some stuff that draws a line between two arbitrary  points, some sort of "2-vertex-polygon", to do the job.
    Will this be possible in Coffee ?

    It's a bit unclear what you really want to do. Generating geometry is possible in C.O.F.F.E.E., drawing in the editor is not. For 2-vertex-polygons you could use splines, though they won't render unless you use a Sweep NURBS or something like the Solid Spline plugin.

    Thank you very much, mikael, for your fast reply (it really helped). This stuff may sound weird - 2-vertex-polys etc., I use it for some algorithm where I need 3d lines (which is: 2-vertex-polys).

    I will use a fake 4-vertex poly (w/only two unique vertices) to emulate 2-vertex polys that _will_ be drawn.
