QD3D Does Not Free Memory Used By Geometries

Q: When you allocate memory for vertices & contours in general polygons (or any polygon, for that matter) is it necessary to free the memory when finished? Or does QuickDraw 3D do that for us?

A: After you create the geometry object (for example with Q3Polygon_New()), you can safely dispose of your buffers. QD3D will not do it for you.
