Good news. Do you have already a website to see your first result or it is 
the beginning of your programming ?

Do you know the work of Kamil Dobkowski who wrote a KDE interface to display 
1D graphics, 2D pictures and 3D voulume which can be controlled through 
octave (also scilab and python) ?

The related website is

Sorry, I have no response to your question.
I don't know octave so deeply.

Good work,
