# How to place picture in three d

How do you add a 2 dimensional picture (an asymptote picture object) into a three dimensional drawing in asymptote? I have tried `add(picture, triple)`, but it gives no output (no errors, just a blank screen). Full code:

``````import three;
picture p;
size(p, 300);
defaultpen(0.1pt);
path P=polygon(6);
int h, k;
h=3;
k=5;
int bigger(int a, int b) {
if(a >= b) {
return a;
}
else {
return b;
}
}
real distance(pair a, pair b) {
return sqrt((a.x-b.x)^2+(a.y-b.y)^2);
}
int bound = 1+bigger(h, k);
pair A=dir(60)+dir(0), B=dir(60)+dir(120);
for(int i = -bound; i<= bound; ++i) {
for(int j = 0; j <= bound+5; ++j) {
draw(p,shift((i*A.x, abs(i*A.y))+j*B)*P, blue);
}
}
pair C, D;
C = h*A + k*B;
D = rotate(60, (0,0))*C;
clip(p,C--D--(0,0)--cycle);
draw(p,C--D--(0,0)--cycle, green+linewidth(0.15pt));
real Angle = aTan(C.y/C.x);
This (without including in 3d) produces this: I want to place it in three dimensions as the face of a solid, in the end producing something like this: This may be an unreasonable request, but the reason I need this is because I have drawn a 2d picture as the "pattern" for each face of my 3d solid, and need a way to include it in three dimensions. The reason I had to draw it in 2d was because I needed the `clip` command, which is not available in 3d.
• This can't be done easily, but there are two ways I can think of to approach it. First, you could use the `bsp` module -- see the picture `colorplanes.asy` in the Asymptote gallery. Second, you could implement your own clipping using intersections. – Charles Staats Jul 26 '16 at 17:13
