TikZ | Configuration of Example

Postby svend_tveskaeg on Tue Oct 9th, 2012

Hi all.

The example here is just great (and even better with the implementation in the comment).

I would, however, like to have all the sides on a cube in the same color but have the color change in each layer of cubes. (I hope it makes sense.)

I have never used TikZ (and I do not have the time to learn it at the moment), so I would be very glad if someone would change the code for me.

Thank you in advance!

I am not sure if people are quite because

(1) there is no MWE directly in the thread,
(2) no one can solve my problem, or
(3) something else.

Therefore, I will eliminate the first possibility:

Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[danish]{babel}
\usepackage{ifthenx}
\usepackage{verbatim}
\usepackage{tikz
}

% Three counters
\newcounter{x}
\newcounter{y}
\newcounter{z
}
% The angles of x,y,z-axes
\newcommand{\xaxis}{210}
\newcommand{\yaxis}{-30}
\newcommand{\zaxis}{90
}
% The top side of a cube
\newcommand{\topside}[3]{%
  \fill[fill=yellow, draw=black,shift={(\xaxis:#1)},shift={(\yaxis:#2)},
  shift={(\zaxis:#3)}
] (0,0) -- (30:1) -- (0,1) --(150:1)--(0,0);
}
% The left side of a cube
\newcommand{\leftside}[3]{%
  \fill[fill=red, draw=black,shift={(\xaxis:#1)},shift={(\yaxis:#2)},
  shift={(\zaxis:#3)}
] (0,0) -- (0,-1) -- (210:1) --(150:1)--(0,0);
}
% The right side of a cube
\newcommand{\rightside}[3]{%
  \fill[fill=blue, draw=black,shift={(\xaxis:#1)},shift={(\yaxis:#2)},
  shift={(\zaxis:#3)}
] (0,0) -- (30:1) -- (-30:1) --(0,-1)--(0,0);
}
% The cube
\newcommand{\cube}[3]{%
  \topside{#1}{#2}{#3} \leftside{#1}{#2}{#3} \rightside{#1}{#2}{#3}
}
% Definition of \planepartition
\newcommand\planepartition[1]{
 \setcounter{x}{-1}
  \foreach \a in {#1} {
    \addtocounter{x}{1}
    \setcounter{y}{-1}
    \foreach \b in \a {
      \addtocounter{y}{1}
      \setcounter{z}{-1}
      \foreach \c in {0,...,\b} {
        \addtocounter{z}{1}
      \ifthenelse{\c=0}{\setcounter{z}{-1},\addtocounter{y}{0}}{
        \cube{\value{x}}{\value{y}}{\value{z}}}
      }
    }
  }
}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
 \planepartition{{5,3,2,2},{4,2,2,1},{2,1},{1}}
\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document
}

You seem to assume that those who are able to help always can invest their time especially in your problems. That is not the case. m(

No I do not. That is why I wrote (3).

localghost wrote:... especially in your problems

If I have given that impression in my previous posts, I apologise. That was not my indend.

P.S. I am glad whenever someone helps me. As I said before, I just tried to eliminate one of the possible reason why my post was not answered.

My bet would be the following sentence:
I would be very glad if someone would change the code for me.


Questions that sound like “please do it for me” are very unlikely to be answered, the more so the more direct they are (even if they are more honest that way and regardless of the reasons behind them...). At least that's my experience.

Clemens

That makes sense.

However, I have no intend of people coming foreward afterwards and claming that they were duped; I am telling it at it is. If that means that I will not get any help, then so be it.

Since I do now know TikZ at all and really like the code above with the alternation that I mentioned, that is how I do it.

And because you are so impatient, you have posted this also on {TeX} SX? Our administrator has written down some interesting thoughts in this regard.

However, I have an (untested) idea: change all colors (yellow, blue, red) into cubecolor and add
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\colorlet{cubecolor}{red!\c0}
(or similar) right beneath
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
\addtocounter{z}{1}


This should draw each layer in a different shade of red.

Very good, Clemens! I tested it, and this gives:

cubes.png (12.4 KiB) Viewed 839 times

Perhaps post it to the other site. If you don't have TeX at hand to compile, just use this image there as well.

I have, together with a second idea I had.
