[GRASS-user] Extracting from 2D to 3D

Hello all,

I have purchased to book, Open Source Grass, the third edition and  
wanted to experiment with 3D vectors using nviz.  I have followed the  
commands in the book, page 209/210 but can not display the 3D vectors  
in nviz.  Is there an update to the commands or can anyone describe  
to me what I am doing wrong.

I have set the region according to the book.
GRASS 6.3.0 (nc_spm_07):~ > g.region rural_1m -p
projection: 99 (Lambert Conformal Conic)
zone:       0

ewres:      1

GRASS 6.3.0 (nc_spm_07):~ > nviz elev_lid792_1m  
col=ortho_2001_t792_1m vect=bldg_resid_3d,bldg_cmcl_3d

Any advice as to setting the region for this to work?

Thanks in advance,
