cube_grid

cube_grid, a Python code which generates a grid of points over the interior of a cube (actually, a hexahedron) in 3D.

The grid is created inside a 3D shape which we may informally call a cube. Actually, it is a hexahedron (six-sided shape) determined by 8 user-specified vertices, given in a particular order that is suggested by the following list:

```         000
X00
0Y0
XY0
00Z
X0Z
0YZ
XYZ
```

For each dimension of the three spatial dimensions, the user may specify the number of subintervals into which the edges of the hexahedron are to be divided (at least 1, in each case). The total number of grid points may be determined by adding one to each of these three numbers and computing their product.

Languages:

cube_grid is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version and a Python version.
