Hi,

I read the book and it said the unit of object on screen can be anything, but I'm not sure I understood it correctly. If I have a point with coordinates (7000, 7000, 7000), how can I display this point on window screen? Will it depends on our window size? i.e. the window width and height? I guess not, but I don't know how to explain it correctly.

For z coordinates, it makes sense because the depth could be any value, but for the x and y coordinates, I'm lost. The maximum of width and height on my window is 1024 x 1024. How can I fit that point in?

Thank you,
