hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

given a unit normal (nx,ny,nz) to a surface, the two tangent vectors

are: s = (-ny+nz, nz-nz, -nx+ny) and t = n x s (with s, t normalized).

now, if nx=ny=nz, then s & t become trivial.

how do i find these tangent vectors for this special case?

thanks alot.
