Sets of points and solid edges with OOGL
I want to visualize a set of 3D points and the edges of a projected 5-cube using geomview; this has to do with creating a nice picture for the Center's entrance regarding Penrose tilings. My main concern is rendering a nice picture. Right now I generate a VECT file using a small modification to the QuasiTiler program; for the points I use one vertex for each line, and then use use a line width of 3 or 4; for the edges I use 2 vertices for each. The disadvantages of this are: - The perception of depth is lost by using points and lines of fixed size. - Changing the line width is not implemented on the NeXT version of geomview. Since I am taking the time to do this, I want to add this as a feature of the program QuasiTiler, which is only implemented on the NeXT. I would like to be able to display at least 250 points, but preferably 1000 points. Is using spheres or cubes a good idea? If so, what is the best way of doing it? For the edges I would like to have something that looks like the scene of NotKnot in the Center's poster. Any suggestions? Eugenio
