Hello!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't know if this is the right forum to post this doubt, but here it goes:

I would like to know how to calculate perspective precedence in 3D space. (I'm not a mathematician, so I don't know if it's the correct term, but I will try to explain what I need).

I have an observer in space (px, py, pz).

I also have a Rubik’s Cube, with 27 "little cubes". Rubik’s Cube can rotate any direction.

I have to calculate the sequence of the nearer cubes, from observer's perspective.

I tried to use the distance's formula to calculate this precedence between the 27 little cubes, but it doesn't help when I have some cubes rotated. I believe that there is something else to calculate, but I don't know what it is. The problem is shown in the figure below, when I try to rotate the cubes with gray faces vertically.

The distance formula I use is in http://www.flashandmath.com/flashcs4/zsort/sortpic.jpg

Thanks, and sorry if I wasn't so clear.
