Here's the info from Optimizeit:

Class name:                             count:  size:
float[]                                 9797    30347K
Object[]                                220777  8870K
javax.vecmath.Point3d                   74015   3469K
java.util.ArrayList                     69935   2731K
javax.medis.j3d.Shape3DRetained         8561    2073K
javax.media.j3d.J3dMessage              34461   1884K
javax.media.j3d.LineArrayRetained       4280    1772K
int[]                                   19169   1590K
...

Once the setRange loop started, the float[] started dominating and
Point3d climbed up the list.

Hope that helps,
Doug
