comment Triangulation of the surface determined by sampling two of its cross-sections
@O'Rourke: Professor, i haven't yet had a chance to check the references you posted, so maybe i'm asking something that you already answered, but there you go: Do you know where i can find out more about such algorithms you mentioned? (I'm fairly convinced that my problem will fall into this "impossible" category, given how feature-rich each slice is, but maybe i can work around it somehow…)

@O'Rourke: Professor, thank you much for your help, and for the references as well — i really appreciate them, and i'm sure they'll lead me forward. As i mentioned above, i wasn't very clear-headed when i wrote up this question, but i believe that you capture the essence of my doubts (which i have a hard time putting in words, being fresh to this problem and field and all). In hindsight, i should've asked earlier… ;-)

@Aaron: this is precisely what i had in mind when i wrote the question last night — sorry if i wasn't clear enough (at that point of the day i couldn't think straight anymore :-P). And thank you for your time and attention, i really appreciate it: i've been working with this problem for a couple of months now, and progress has been à la "two steps forwards, one backwards". ;-)

comment What is the best graph editor to use in your articles?
@Mikael: PGF/TikZ is a very resourceful tool, up-to-par with PSTricks and much easier than MetaPost or MetFont — or even Asymptote for that matter. ;-)
