# Cube Command

From GeoGebra Manual

- Cube[ <Point>, <Point>, <Direction> ]
- Creates a cube having the segment between the two points as an edge.
- The other vertices are uniquely determined by the given direction, that should be one of:
- a vector, a segment, a line, a ray
**orthogonal**to the segment, or - a polygon, a plane
**parallel**to the segment.

- a vector, a segment, a line, a ray
- The created cube will have:
- a face with the segment as an edge in a plane orthogonal to the given vector/segment/line/ray, or
- a face with the segment as an edge in a plane parallel to the polygon/plane.

- Cube[ <Point>, <Point>, <Point>]
- Creates a cube with three (adjacent) points of the first face. The points have to start a square for the cube to be defined.

- Cube[ <Point>, <Point>]
- Creates a cube with two (adjacent) points of the first face, and the third point automatically created on a circle, so that the cube can rotate around its first edge.
**Note:**Cube[A, B] is a shortcut for Cube[A, B, C] with C = Point[Circle[B, Distance[A, B], Segment[A, B]]].
