Re: Translate



Hi Gidi,

Graphics is the head of 2D graphics, Graphics3D that of 3D graphics.

GraphicsComplex can be used inside 2 or 3D graphics to indicate points 

by integers for simplicity.

Translate works for Graphics and Graphics3D as well, as the following 

examples show:

Graphics[Translate[Circle[], {1, 1}], Axes -> True]

Graphics3D[Translate[Sphere[], {1, 1, 1}], Axes -> True]

hope this helps, Daniel
