Three-Dimensional Graphics

Transformations will be represented by 4x4 matrices.  

The example from the text:
Objective: Transform the directed line segments P1P2 and P1P3 from their starting position to their final position as indicated in the figure below. Thus, Example 1: Composite 3D Rotation/Translation

4 Steps:
