How to plot a sphere using PLOTCUBE command?
3 views (last 30 days)
I need to make a sphere of cubes, think something like a sphere in Minecraft made from blocks. I'm thinking the function PLOTCUBE on file exchange is perfect for this. I'm not sure how to implement it thought. It would probably have to be a for loop. If anyone has any ideas, it would be much appeciated.

A possible solution is as follows
% Using spherical coordinates to plot the cubes
for r = linspace(0,1,20) % define the range for radius of sphere
for phi = linspace(0,pi,10) % define the range for phi angle
for theta =linspace(0,2*pi,50) % define the range for theta angle
origin = [(r)*cos(theta)*sin(phi), (r)*sin(theta)*sin(phi), (r)*cos(phi)];
edges = [0.03,0.03,0.03];
plotcube(edges,origin,0.8,[0.5 0.5 0.5]);
Note - Since it's a nested for loop, it is computationally expensive
