# How can I draw a Cuboid given its center and its dimensions? [duplicate]

I want to draw a Cuboid accroding to the coordinates of its geometric center and its dimensions, rather than its diagnoal coordiantes. And How can I draw a triangular prism?

cuboid[center_, dim_ ] := Cuboid[center - dim/2, center + dim/2]

Graphics3D[cuboid[{6, 7, 8}, {1, 2, 3}], Axes -> True]


For the triangular prism see my answer here.

Edit

cuboid[{c, c, c}, {xd, yd, zd}] == cuboid[ c, {xd, yd, zd}]


and

cuboid[{cx, cy, cz}, {d, d, d}] == cuboid[ {cx, cy, cz}, d]


If you want

cuboid[ 1, 3 ]


to represent a cube of size 3 centered at {1, 1, 1}, you can modify the definition as follows:

cuboid[center_, dim_ ] := Cuboid[center - dim/2 + {0,0,0}, center + dim/2 + {0,0,0}]

• center + dim/2 + {0, 0, 0} ?? Commented Apr 14, 2016 at 17:26
