/** This makes a cube that projects a different silhouette
    along 3 axes, and renders it in Waveform .obj format for 3-D printing.
    It takes 3 square black-and-white images, one for each axis.  (They can
    be different sizes; this resizes them to 200x200 pixels.) The white
    parts will be "cut out" of the cube.

    You will probably want to provide your own images, but here are the ones
    I used for the letters A, B, E:
