Sample text

Here, the JavaScript console is telling us that we forgot THREE should always be all capital letters. There is no such thing as Three, which is what we wrote and what the JavaScript console is telling us. This is a very common mistake when working with the 3D library, so make sure you remember it for the next time you see the error. We can fix this problem by replacing the Three in the code with THREE. Possible Error Message—Undefined: No Method Even with those two issues fixed, the sphere is still not visible and we have another cryptic error message in the console.

When it detected the line wasn’t finished, it triggered an error to warn, “Hey! ” It’s up to us to figure out where the line should end. Some things to check in your code when you see a red X: • Did you forget a semicolon? • If you don’t see a problem on the red X line, look at the previous line, as well. ICE can’t always tell where the problem begins and may be off by one or two lines. 4 Debugging in ICE: The Yellow Triangle Unlike a red X, a yellow triangle showing up to the left of your code is not a show-stopper.

We set X to 150 while Y and Z are both 0. x = 150. As we’ll see shortly, it can be very convenient to set multiple values on a single line. report erratum • discuss Adding Feet for Walking • 29 But why 150? The answer is that the radius of the body is 100 and the radius of the hand is 50. We need to move the hand 100 + 50, or 150 in the X (left/right) direction: If we only moved the center of the hand 100, then we would end up with the hand partly inside the body: Try This Yourself If you’re not convinced, try it yourself.
