The Intersection Points of a Polyhedron and a Linear Path

2006.01.20.
The following four images illustrate the intersections of a dodecahedron and a linear path. The 3DLDF code for generating these images is in plyhd_01.ldf.

[Polyhedron-Linear Path Intersection 1]

Perspective Projection




[Polyhedron-Linear Path Intersection 2]

Parallel Projection, X-Z Plane




[Polyhedron-Linear Path Intersection 3]

Parallel Projection, X-Y Plane




[Polyhedron-Linear Path Intersection 4]

Parallel Projection, Z-Y Plane
