[GRASS-user] Creating 3D Vector file (v.in.ascii) for eventual use in NVIZ

I'm mucking about with NVIZ and want to put some simple rectangles on a
3D image to represent buildings.  A number of questions:

1)  I presume that 3D rectangles can be created using v.in.ascii.
However, its not obvious to me from the v.in.ascii man page how a 3D
rectangle should be specified.  Could someone please enlighten me here
or point me to the specification?  

2) I have also been trying to find actual worked examples with code for
3D NVIZ examples like those given at:


My thoughts were to simply read in a couple of 3D vector files, then
v.transform them and patch them to create my "developments".  

Other suggestions on how best to do this are also appreciated.
