3-dimensional arrays

A 3-d array is harder to visualize (and draw...) but you might think of it like this:

Another way to look at arrays is: if a 1-d array is a list of cells then in a 2-d array you can imagine that each cell is another list of cells. In a 3-d array, each of those cells is yet another list of cells.

Example use for a 3-dimensional array

If, in our previous example, we wanted to store some more information about the blocks eg. their angles, then we could put that in the z dimension.

We set the size of the array to 4,3,2. Now blocks.At(x,y,0) will store the animation for the block and blocks.At(x,y,1) will store it’s angle.
