# JavaFX | Point3D Class

Point3D class is a part of JavaFX. This class defines a 3-dimensional point in a 3D space. The Point3D class represents a 3D point by its x, y, z coordinates.

Constructor of the class is:

• Point3D(double x, double y, double z): Creates a Point3D objects using the specified coordinates.

Commonly Used Methods:

Method Explanation
distance(double x, double y, double z) Calculates the distance between this point and the specified point
distance(Point3D p) Calculates the distance between this point and the specified Point3D object
equals(java.lang.Object o) Returns a hash code value for the point.
getX() Returns the x coordinate
getY() Returns the y coordinate
getZ() Returns the z coordinate
hashCode() Returns a hash code for this Point3D object.

Below programs will illustrate the use of the Point3D class:

1. Java program to create a Point3D object and display its coordinates and find its distance from the origin: In this program we create a Point3D object named point3d_1 by passing its x, y, z coordinates as arguments. We get the x, y, z argument using the getX(), getY(), getZ() function and display it. We also calculate the distance of the point from the origin and also display it.

 `// Java program to create a point 3D  ` `// object and display its coordinates ` `// and find its distance from origin ` `import` `javafx.geometry.Point3D; ` ` `  `public` `class` `Point3D_1 { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[]) ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``// Create a point3D object ` `        ``Point3D point3d_1 = ``new` `Point3D(``20``.0f, ``50``.0f, ``70``.0f); ` ` `  `        ``double` `x, y, z; ` ` `  `        ``// get the coordinates of the point ` `        ``x = point3d_1.getX(); ` `        ``y = point3d_1.getY(); ` `        ``z = point3d_1.getZ(); ` ` `  `        ``// display the coordinates of the point ` `        ``System.out.println(``"x coordinate = "` `+ x  ` `                            ``+ ``", y coordinate = "`  `                            ``+ y + ``", z coordinate = "` `+ z); ` ` `  `        ``// print its distance from origin ` `        ``System.out.println(``"Distance From Origin = "`  `                     ``+ point3d_1.distance(``0``, ``0``, ``0``)); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```x coordinate = 20.0, y coordinate = 50.0, z coordinate = 70.0
Distance From Origin = 88.31760866327846
```

2. Java program to create 3 Point3D objects and display their coordinates and distance from the origin and check which of the 3 points are similar and their distances between two points: In this program we create 3 Point3D objects named point3d_1, point3d_2, point3d_3 by passing its x, y, z coordinates as arguments. we get the x, y, z argument using the getX(), getY(), getZ() function and display it. We also calculate the distance of the point from the origin and also display it for each of the three points. We also display whether any two points are equal or not using equals() function and also display the distance between two points using the distance function.

 `// Java program to create 3 Point3D objects and  ` `// display their coordinates and distance from  ` `// origin and check which of the 3 points are  ` `// similar and their distances between two points ` `import` `javafx.geometry.Point3D; ` ` `  `public` `class` `Point3D_2 { ` ` `  `    ``// Main Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String args[]) ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``// create three point3D objects ` `        ``Point3D point3d_1 = ``new` `Point3D(``20``.0f, ``50``.0f, ``70``.0f); ` `        ``Point3D point3d_2 = ``new` `Point3D(``20``.0f, ``50``.0f, ``70``.0f); ` `        ``Point3D point3d_3 = ``new` `Point3D(``200``.0f, ``20``.0f, ``90``.0f); ` ` `  `        ``// display the coordinates of the 3 points ` `        ``display(point3d_1); ` `        ``display(point3d_2); ` `        ``display(point3d_3); ` ` `  `        ``// check whether any point is equal to other or not ` `        ``System.out.println(``"Point 1 equals point 2 = "`  `                       ``+ point3d_1.equals(point3d_2)); ` ` `  `        ``System.out.println(``"Point 2 equals point 3 = "`  `                       ``+ point3d_2.equals(point3d_3)); ` ` `  `        ``System.out.println(``"Point 3 equals point 1 = "`  `                        ``+ point3d_3.equals(point3d_1)); ` ` `  `        ``// distance between two points ` `        ``System.out.println(``"Distane between point 1 and point 2 = "`  `                                  ``+ point3d_1.distance(point3d_2)); ` ` `  `        ``System.out.println(``"Distane between point 2 and point 3 = "`  `                                   ``+ point3d_2.distance(point3d_3)); ` ` `  `        ``System.out.println(``"Distane between point 3 and point 1 = "`  `                                  ``+ point3d_3.distance(point3d_1)); ` `    ``} ` ` `  `    ``// Display Method ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `display(Point3D point3d) ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``double` `x, y, z; ` ` `  `        ``// get the coordinates of the point ` `        ``x = point3d.getX(); ` `        ``y = point3d.getY(); ` `        ``z = point3d.getZ(); ` ` `  `        ``// display the coordinates of the point ` `        ``System.out.println(``"x coordinate = "` `+ x  ` `                           ``+ ``", y coordinate = "`  `                           ``+ y + ``", z coordinate = "` `+ z); ` ` `  `        ``// print its distance from origin ` `        ``System.out.println(``"Distance From Origin = "` `+  ` `                            ``point3d.distance(``0``, ``0``, ``0``)); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```x coordinate = 20.0, y coordinate = 50.0, z coordinate = 70.0
Distance From Origin = 88.31760866327846
x coordinate = 20.0, y coordinate = 50.0, z coordinate = 70.0
Distance From Origin = 88.31760866327846
x coordinate = 200.0, y coordinate = 20.0, z coordinate = 90.0
Distance From Origin = 220.22715545545242
Point 1 equals point 2 = true
Point 2 equals point 3 = false
Point 3 equals point 1 = false
Distane between point 1 and point 2 = 0.0
Distane between point 2 and point 3 = 183.5755975068582
Distane between point 3 and point 1 = 183.5755975068582
