This Maple worksheet provides examples and animations of 3-D objects and their shadows. In the first example, a box with two open sides rotates around a light source, and its shadow is projected on the xy plane. In the second example, a rotating ring flies over a hilly landscape, and a travelling sun projects the ring's shadow on the landscape.
