Png') [ 47 ] Creating and Editing Objects Adding a lamp is not much different from adding any other object and is very similar to the "hello world" example. We create a new Lamp object, add it to the current scene, and set its location. A Lamp object has of course many configurable options but we settle for a default non-directional lamp in this example. setLocation(*loc) Adding a camera is a little more intricate as we have to point it to our bar chart and make sure that the view angle is wide enough to see everything.

We build a few small scripts that illustrate how to access faces, edges, and vertices and how to work with the various properties of these objects. Selecting warped (non-planar) quads Warped quads, also known as bow-tie quads, are sometimes formed when accidentally mixing up the vertex order during face creation. In a less extreme case they might be formed when moving a single vertex of a planar quad.
