Is this possible?

Hi everyone,

I am new to Java 3d and have question.
I want to create a 3D drawing, consisting of multiple 3d rectangles. These rectangles have to be put together in a certain angle.
The goal is to make a technical drawing, depending on some parameters, so it has to be very correct.

Any help is much appreciated!

J.

This is definitely possible. All transformations in the scenegraph are
expressed as matrices with double (really float) precision.

Check the Java3D tutorial or pick up a Java3D book to get started.

Take a look at the demo/java3d directory in your installation. There are
numerous examples in there. Something like GearTest or HelloUniverse are
good starting points.

I have looked at the samples, but they are a bit to advanced for what I need.

All I would like to achieve is the following:

(imagine it is in 3d ;-) )

box1
_____________
a1 \ box4
box2 \ /
\ a2 box3 a3 /
\____________________/

I would like to create 4 boxes: box1 and box2 create a
angle a1, box2 and box3 create a angle a2, etc ... .
I must be able to set the length of each box and also the
angle that two boxes together create.
Maybe boxes are not the right way to go (as you can see, they must flow over into each other)

Anyone know some tips/advice?

Thx in advance.

Johan
