    Question Implementation of 3D char and use of Jfreechart

    Hi there,
    I'm not really familiar with charting in java but I wish to create an xyz environment (with axes)
    in order to put cubes in the places I want, just reading from a coordinates vector.

    E.g. I wish to put 3 cubes with coordinates
    x[1]: 0 y[1]:0 z[1]: 0 and x[2]: 1 y[2]:0 z[2]: 0 x[3]: 1 y[3]:1 z[3]: 0

    And the cubes are displayed on xyz bar chart format

    Then I wish to distinguish two kind of cubes by using different colors.

    I am using jfreechart currently for plotting charts but there is no chart in this library with a Z axis.

    Can anyone help me?

    Hello tomcat, welcome to the Java Programming Files.

    Have you tried the JOpenChart Library?

    JOpenChart Java Library

    I believe this allows for a Z axis.

    Hi JavaPF,
    Thanks for your reply.
    I explored JOpenChart but found that this also doesn't support Z-Axis.
    Also there is not much documentation available for this library.

    This may seem crazy but if you are not after a graph tha tis going to be joining lines after plotting points then you could create your own library in not too much time i imagine. Thus it would be completely customised to you and will require little maths to work out. However, if you require it to plot join points with curves etc then the mathsbehind it will be a bit more complex, but I'm sure there are adequate exaples out there on the internet. It would just be a case of finding out where it is located
