To use the matplotlib-based interactive cube, run
If you want a cube with a different number of sides, use e.g.
python code/cube_interactive.py 5
This will create a 5x5x5 cube
This code should currently be considered to be in beta -- there are several bugs and the GUI has an incomplete set of features
- Click and drag to change the viewing angle of the cube. Holding shift while clicking and dragging adjusts the line-of-sight rotation.
- Arrow keys may also be used to change the viewing angle. The shift key has the same effect
- U/D/L/R/B/F keys rotate the faces a quarter turn clockwise. Hold the shift key to rotate counter-clockwise. Hold a number i to turn the slab at a depth i (e.g. for a 3x3 cube, holding "1" and pressing "L" will turn the center slab).
There are more tools available -- for now, RTFSC.
