bsuncube - view 3-D Sun logo
bsuncube allows the user to view a cube from various positions with
hidden faces removed. The faces of the cube consist of the Sun logo.
The viewing position is selected using the mouse. Using the SunCore
Graphics Package, a 3-D projection is drawn on the Sun Monochrome Bit-
The program operates in two modes: DisplayObject mode and SelectView
mode. The program starts in DisplayObject mode:
DisplayObject: The cube is displayed in 3-D perspective with
hidden faces removed. Type q while in this mode to exit the
program. Press RIGHT mouse button to switch to SelectView mode.
SelectView: Schematic projections of the outline of the cube are
shown and the mouse is used to select a viewing position. Use
LEFT mouse button to set x and MIDDLE mouse button to set y in
the Front View. Use MIDDLE mouse button to set z in the Top
View. Press RIGHT mouse button to switch to DisplayObject mode.
The view shown in DisplayObject mode is drawn using the conventions
that the viewer is always looking from the viewing position toward the
center of the cube and that the positive y axis on the screen is the
projection of the positive y axis in 3-D cube coordinates.
