Anybody know why whenever I drop my subdivision size below 20 with
SkinExtrude I start losing triangle off the mesh? I've already tested
FrustumClipping and positioning the camera much further away. It
seems to be a limitation of the SkinExtrude or something, but I don't
know the math well enough to troubleshoot it. Ideas?

not aware about away3d, but in papervision , these two lines help to
avoid clipping.

camera.useCulling = true;
renderer.clipping = new FrustumClipping(FrustumClipping.NEAR);

Like I said, I don't think its a scene/view clipping problem since
moving the camera and trying to use FrustumClipping didn't help at
all.

No idea, but when its on 20 I lose the corner face and in your class you have

  removeFace(this.faces[0]);
  removeFace(this.faces[1]);

Would be my first "guess".

I'll fix that when I get home, but if it was a problem it should occur
regardless of subdivision size, shouldn't it?
