# Death Star/J-Oops

Alternative Solution:

This version classifies surface normals by comparison to reference surfaces. Multiple spheres may be removed. Exercises for the intrepid student: enhance color resolution with more reference surfaces or combinations of all surfaces matching better than some criterion, incorporate ThinFaces for anti-aliasing, map the colors for realism.

resolution=: 8 spheres=: 3 1 #"1 ] 0 1,_1 1,:0.3 0.6 NB. spheres x y z r
