CS 423 -- Computer Graphics -- Demos Page

For Java programming background information, you may also want to consult the demos listed on the Java Resources page. You can also find instructions for downloading the SUN Java Development Kit (Free Java!) there.


These demonstration programs are written in Java, version 1.1.7 or higher. Because the emphasis is on the first principles of computer graphics, these demos use a minimal amount from the Java AWT, and nothing from Java2D. They illustrate from the ground up how to create a 3-dimensional cube which can be rotated around any of the three world coordinate axes. The programs are written for logical clarity rather than efficiency, and they leave some things out so you can have the fun of implementing them.
