10th March 2014

For IE10+, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera (Developer)

Just to see what is possible in 3D perspective drawing without using the 'transform-style: preserve-3d;' which is still not supported in Internet Explorer.

I can only manage a limited viwing angle using IE10 and IE11 permitted styling, and it proved impossible to produce a complete 360 degree rotation.

Firefox is still way behind Chrome Safari and Opera when it comes to smoothness of rendering and animating 3D models.

The next demonstraton will show how easy it becomes when you can use 'transform-style: preserve-3d;'.
