I made that, because I think it is faster than explaining everything with 

Tell me if you have any questions about my changes. The aim being that you

I suggest you add all needed methods to the GluQuadric and GluNurb classes as 
I told you in a previous mail, so that the user can do either 
Glu.QuadricNormals(quad, normal) or quad.Normals(normal) and so on.

I removed the word "Quadric" from the method name, because it is redondant.

If you have a function (it is an example, I don't know if it is true) named 
Glu.QuadricNormals() that apply a parameter to the quadric, and another 
function that returns the applied value, you can make a property instead of a
