Your efforts are very welcome! We (until now) concentrate on 2D
algoritms (especially w.r.t. boolean operations) but we took care the
design was 3D (or N-D) , and the geometries and operations which are
basically dimension agnostic (such as distance, length, centroid) are
N-D implemented.

More 3D is very welcome and working on algorithms that you require is
always a happy path.

So yes we will be very glad with your efforts.

Thanks, Barend
