Hi Smith,

I also agree this is a good idea.

I think we should consider developing a 3D focused chapter as well.

I volunteer to generate some content for a potential 3D chapter in the event it is accepted as part of the document.

Best Regards,

I had hoped that the IPP Implementor's Guide v2 was going to provide some of this. But an "IPP Basics" document like what you describe below is really a better first starting point, which then may refer the reader to IPP Implementor's Guide v2. Perhaps the examples you discuss below should also be done using "ipptool" / "ippserver"?
