Draws a 3-D cube in a 3-D graph.

Simple function to draw a voxel (cube, cuboid) in a specific position of specific dimensions in a 3-D plot. Transparency of the voxel can also be specified.
Many voxels can be aggregated to form a different shapes (a simple 3-D "+" is shown in the screenshot).

Thanks for sharing the great function. Can anyone please tell me how to draw many voxels using this function? Does it need a for loop? Thank you very much

i am beginner , can anyone please tell me how to run this file,
i wrote the program on a new m file and tried to run it but it did not work.


alpha is not assigned a default value when the function is called with two parameters


Great little script. When I try to use it for large grids, it is extremely slow though. Is there something that can be done to speed it up?
