3D Tubes in Visual Basic 6

Environment: Visual Basic 6.0

My purpose for writing this program is to present a visual demo or screen saver-type program. This program, however, is not a a screen saver. It will not be acknowledged by your computer as a screen saver when it is runn, but could be used as the basis for one.

This program presents colors that are shaded with my own sub procedure, which I came up with a while back. I use randoms for the sake of true variety in movement.The following are a few of the random figures generateed in this program.

This is a later version of my original Tube program which had one tube moving around. I have provided comments within the program that I believe are sufficient to explain how it functions. The sub procedures that do not have comment lines should be self-explanatory.

I have not found any bugs or had any problems with this finished version. It has run correctly on my computer using Windows ME Windows. Please feel free to use this program at your own risk. I hope you enjoy watching this.

Editors note: Works on Windows XP as well.
