THREED — 3-d line drawing package.

Synopsis

CURVE3 - Draws the projection of a curve defined by a sequence of points in 3-space.

FENCE3 - Draws the projection of a curve, just as CURVE3 does, but with a "fence" of straight line segments that are parallel to one of the three axes and that extend to a specified plane perpendicular to that axis.

FRST3 - Specifies the first in a sequence of points connected by straight-line segments, the projections of which are to be drawn. (FRST3 is called for the first point in the sequence and VECT3 is called for the rest.)

LINE3 - Draws the projection of a straight-line segment.

PERIM3 - Draws the projection of a rectangular perimeter in a plane parallel to one of the three coordinate planes, with inward-pointing tick marks at specified intervals.

POINT3 - Draws the projection of a point.

PWRZT - Draws the projection of character strings that are positioned in a plane parallel to one of the three coordinate planes.

SET3 - Defines the transformation from three dimensions to two dimensions.

TICK43 - Gives user control of tick mark length in PERIM3.

VECT3 - Defines the second and all subsequent points in a sequence of points connected by straight-line segments, the projections of which are to be drawn. (FRST3 is called for the first point in the sequence and VECT3 is called for the rest.)

Access

To use THREED routines, load the NCAR Graphics libraries ncarg, ncarg_gks, and ncarg_c, preferably in that order.
