Several straightforward techniques for displaying arbitrary solids of the sort encountered in the life sciences are presented, all variations of simple three-dimensional scatter plots. They are all targeted for a medium cost raster display (an AED-5l2 has been used here). Practically any host computer may be used to implement them. All techniques are broadly applicable and were implemented as Master Degree projects. The major hardware constraint is data transmission speed, and this is met by minimizing the amount of graphical data, ignoring enhancement of the data, and using terminal scan-conversion and aspect firmware wherever possible. Three simple rendering techniques and the use of several graphics cues are described.
