The evolution of a three-dimensional (3D) grain structure is simulated by a vertex dynamics method. Normal grain growth is simulated and two-dimensional (2D) sections and the 3D structure are analysed and compared with a 2D simulation. It is shown that 2D sections of a 3D structure can be distinguished from a pure 2D situation.
