[pstricks] Bluring self-created High Level Object

Hi Martin,

you can use

linearc=0.06  %small value, for just smooth edges

within the options of \pspolygon, that rounds a bit the edges.

I guess \multido and shadows puts the shadows one after the other (in 
the picture one in front of the other) what makes it look a little strange.
I think the way is to make the CPU as  one OBJECT drwan by ONE polygon 
(with or without rounded edges). Then add the shadow on that object and 
after that put a simple \psframe in front of the object in another color 
(with or without round edges).

That is quite a messy work to draw such a polygon, but if you add 
\psgrid into the pspicture you always have a coordinate system and you 
can see where you have to put the edges of the polygon. That's how i 
always do it. When i am ready i comment the grid out.

I think such a CPU-polygon is drawn in five minutes without multido and 
you can have the full amount of shadow.

Good luck and let me see your result, when you got it.
