    Default Line-Object Intersection

    I am looking into line-plane intersection, so can anyone point me towards how to to perform calculus problems in java?

    I don't believe you need calculus, just algebra and a little trig. Do a web search on 3d vector math.

    I have been. So far I have implemented a method to find the plane equation of any 3 points. I can use the plane equation to find the line intersection given the start and end points.

    So far the only thing I saw regarding what kind of math it is, said it was calculus 3. But I got it to work.
