comment 3D solids with Tikz - or an alternative?
@CharlesStaats Interesting that you don't see this behavior. Maybe it is a deficiency of the Windows version of Asymptote. Thanks for the tips about arrow heads.

comment 3D solids with Tikz - or an alternative?
@CharlesStaats Very nice picture. But I guess there is no general way to simultaneously allow for vector output and being able to change the view angle without getting the depth order of the picture elements wrong, right? I noticed that when I compiled your asymptote code as standalone pictures with prc, i.e. using the vector-picture as preview image, then the arrows tips are rendered incorrectly (they change their color). This doesn't happen when I compile the code without prc. Do you happen to know why this could be? Shouldn't the preview image be the same as the one without prc?

@AndrewStacey Sounds good. By the way, I just found a work-around for my case: replacing \pgfpathlineto{\pgfpoint{1cm}{1cm}} with \pgfpathmoveto{\pgfpoint{1cm}{1cm}} works. So \pgfpathlineto is recognized correctly.

@AndrewStacey Would it be possible to tell hobby the initial point explicitly (maybe as an option to \pgfpathhobby) without having to use \pgfpathmoveto?

Awesome, this syntax is definitely more convenient than what I came up with (I thought there was something preventing the use of keyword arguments in the Basic Layer, that's why my version was so complicated). If I may, I'd like to make some suggestion for the behaviour of those hobby Basic Layer commands, because it does behave the way I would have expected. And I still couldn't manage to combine an arc and a Hobby path to a (combined) closed path. See my edit.

Thank you very much for your answer and sorry that my response comes so late. This looks pretty much like what I had in mind. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get your new code working with my MiKTeX distribution in order to test it. I have edited my question to share my thoughts on the syntax. But I don't know much about the inner workings of pgf and hobby so that my suggestion might not be very practical. But maybe it gives you some ideas that might be helpful. Thanks again for being so quick about implementing a solution to my problem in your package.
