I am preparing figures that will be displayed on screen but also printed in black & white. These figures contain several 3d cube shapes that need to be distinguished from one another. Here is one example:
There are too many cubes (5-6 in general) to be able to choose colors that will stay different enough when converted to black & white, or for color-blind people. I want to make sure that one can distinguish the different cubes when they are printed in black and white. With 2d figures, I have had some success using patterns:
How can I achieve something similar with 3d shapes? Diagonal stripes will be garbled by the perspective and won't stay consistent between different faces of a cube.
