in 3D Graphics

I'm implementing my own 3d vector class.

I have a rotate method like this:

[code]

//Rotates the vector around the origin and by the selected angles (in radians)

void CVector3D::Rotate(double rotx, double roty, double rotz)

{

if(rotx)

{

y = (double)(y*cos(rotx) - z*sin(rotx));

z = (double)(y*sin(rotx) + z*cos(rotx));

}

if(roty)

{

x = (double)(x*cos(roty) + z*sin(roty));

z = (double)(- x*sin(roty) + z*cos(roty));

}

if(rotz)

{

x = (double)(x*cos(rotz) - y*sin(rotz));

y = (double)(x*sin(rotz) + y*cos(rotz));

}

}

[/code]

but it doesn't work...

Anybody can find the error???

And does anybody know if there's a function to rotate a D3DXVECTOR3 ???

Thank you.

349Doing this:

[code]

if(rotx)

{

y = (double)(y*cos(rotx) - z*sin(rotx));

z = (double)(y*sin(rotx) + z*cos(rotx));

}

[/code]

I change the value of y and then use the new value to update z... (the same for the other axis).

I just needed to store the result in another variable!

This is the function I wrote that works.

[code]

void CVector3D::Rotate(double rotx, double roty, double rotz)

{

CVector3D result(x, y, z);

if (rotx)

{

result.y += (double)(y*cos(rotx) - z*sin(rotx));

result.z += (double)(y*sin(rotx) + z*cos(rotx));

}

if (roty)

{

result.x += (double)(x*cos(roty) + z*sin(roty));

result.z += (double)(- x*sin(roty) + z*cos(roty));

}

if (rotz)

{

result.x += (double)(x*cos(rotz) - y*sin(rotz));

result.y += (double)(x*sin(rotz) + y*cos(rotz));

}

*this = result;

}

[/code]

btw, I've now abandoned this class, because I found that using matrices and D3DVECTOR saves a lot of time; you can try using D3DX functions for matrices, that are very useful and are optimized.
