I wanted to Manipulate the ViewPoint of Grphics3D[Cube[]].

My codes are

Manipulate[Graphics3D[Cube[], ViewPoint -> {a, b, c},
  BoxRatios -> 1, ImageSize -> Small],
 {a, -1, 1}, {b, -1, 1}, {c, -1, 1}, Alignment -> Center,
 ContentSize -> {250, 250}, ControlPlacement -> Top]

But I have 2 problems

Problem 1) Some boundary parts of the cube are cut off when rotated. I tried many options for Manipulate like ContentSize,ImageMargins,FrameMargins,... but didn't work. See the former part of the attached Gif image.

Problem 2) If the cube is rotated by mouse-clicking the cube itself(just once), then the slider doesn't work any more. See the latter part of the attached Gif image.

Thank youenter image description here

My mathematica is V 12.2 and OS is windows 10, and I get

SystemInformation["Devices", "ConnectedDisplays"]

{{"Region" -> {{0., 1152.}, {0., 615.6}}, 
  "FullRegion" -> {{0., 1152.}, {0., 648.}}, 
  "PixelDimensions" -> {1920, 1080}, "BitDepth" -> 32, 
  "Resolution" -> 120., "Scale" -> 1.66667}}
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you, but it is possible that it is not because of the version issue. And I believe there is a way to control (show all, never cut off) the margin of the content. $\endgroup$

I am not getting the first issue you mention on V 13.1 no cut off. But add SphericalRegion->True as it is a good option to always use.

enter image description here

For the second one, try adding this

ViewPoint -> Dynamic@{a, b, c}

So the code becomes

 Graphics3D[Cube[], ViewPoint -> Dynamic@{a, b, c},
  BoxRatios -> 1,
  ImageSize -> Small,
 {a, -1, 1},
 {b, -1, 1},
 {c, -1, 1},
 Alignment -> Center,
 ContentSize -> {250, 250},
 ControlPlacement -> Top,
 TrackedSymbols :> {a, b, c}]

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you ! 2nd problem was solved completely, but 1st problem is not solved though I applied SphericalRegion->True. When I test it on mathematica v13, I will update my comment! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It works nicely after updating to v13. $\endgroup$
