Re: Bug with 3D graphics lines


Chuck,

I tried your 2nd code below on my system and it seems OK to me...

So just to make sure I graphed the all lines together (1 redundantly!)


line1 = Line[{{0, 0, 0}, {4, 4, 0}}];
line2 = Line[{{0, 0, 0}, {0, 0, 2}}];
line3 = Line[{{0, 0, 0}, {4, 4, 0}}];
line4 = Line[{{1, 1, 0}, {1, 1, 2}}];
Show[Graphics3D[{line1, line2, line3, line4}],
  PlotRange -> {{-5, 5}, {-5, 5}, {0, 2}}, Axes -> True,
  AxesLabel -> {x, y, z}]


"6.0 for Mac OS X x86 (32-bit) (June 19, 2007)"

With above code do you still see a problem on your V6 on your machine?


Cheers ... Syd Geraghty
