Point3D class is a part of JavaFX. This class defines a 3dimensional 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:
 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

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.

// check whether any point is equal to other or not
System.out.println(
"Point 1 equals point 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 = "

// Display Method

display(Point3D point3d)
{
double
x, y, z;
// get the coordinates of the point
x = point3d.getX();

// display the coordinates of the point

// print its distance from origin
