  1. Hello Tony,

    I am requesting your support for an online educational tool (tutorial) I am working on through school which emphasizes the presentation of 3D ternary phase diagram data through a web interface.

    At this point in time the tutorial only makes use of images. Ultimately we want to incorporate real 3d interactivity such as that made capable with WebGL and/or Stage3D.

    We already have the 3D data. The hurdle we currently face is getting that data onto the web and putting it behind a user-friendly interactive interface.

    I’m sure you are very busy but I thought it might be worth a try to attempt to directly reach out to you. Any help of any form would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time in reading this message.
