Need guidance as to a small project
Good day everyone,
I am quite new to sage (and this is my first post here) but not quite to programming and I have a project I would like to get started on but am not sure how to go about doing it exactly. (I learn best by diving in, that's just how my brain works :) ).
The project is basically about creating a program for my old college that will help chemistry students have some fun learning their (fairly boring) course. I took it so I know. The program needs to be able to create spheres of varying sizes that can be connected by thin cylinders (yes, much like those models we made back in the day of hydrocarbons and such). The program has to be very intuitive so the user needs to be able to manipulate all the virtual model pieces by simply specifying a shape (sphere or cylinder), adjusting the size, and connecting the pieces in whatever manner they need to. I am also going to make use of the stereographic feature to allow the students to view the models in cyan-red 3D (that's the fun part provided that it works). So can anyone just guide me as to where exactly I can find information related to the kind of program I am trying to design. I am not asking for any code...just guidance as to how I can get started. (And yes I have done a few basic tutorials on sage and I understand roughly how the basic features work).
Thanks in advance :)
