# Bunny BlocksΒΆ

Use of the Stanford Bunny obj format file. Cube coordinates are taken from the surface face coordinates. The algorithm ( block_surface function ) to produce the cubed visualization could be used with any surface object. This surface object was the most interesting. The surface object was clipped to reduce half of the faces which need not be rendered (highlighted line in the script).
