    User controlled 3D box - width, length, height?

    I would greatly appreciate anyone’s ides or comments on this...

    It is way over my head, but we have been given the unwieldy task of creating a dynamic 3D cube for a client so that the faces of the cube can be controlled to alter its shape.

    With some help we got a basic model working here http://clients.ahsinternet.co.uk/moc.../DESIGN_08.htm (on the U Do Design page).

    Whilst this is great, we need more control over the shape with separate values for the top square and the bottom square, along the lines of this but still needs a lot of work http://clients.ahsinternet.co.uk/mockScreens/u-do-design.co.uk/mockScreens/DESIGN_09.htm

    The biggest difficulty I see is calculating the shape correctly with the 45 degree angle.


    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Theres a basic flash 3d engine at http://www.illogicz.com/flashmx/3dengine/.

    It's not that good but considering it's made in flash it's probably the best you're gonna get. Even if you don't use it its fun to mess around with

    What are you talking about it isn't that good, that thing probably took a 1000+ lines of code, it is actually quite amazing since they made it with 2-D based engine.
    So tired of all the fighting....

    It's good for flash. It's very good for flash. But compared to modern day 3d renderring standards its rubbish. Thats all im saying. Flash just doesnt have the ability to do good 3d renderring at a decent speed.

    Haha, thats the idea, flash wasn't made for labor intensive 3D animations, so one who critques a flash 3D animation in such a way is proportional to someone who judges a football player playing in the world cup
