How to draw simple 3D points(x,y,z) in java using Java3D API?

Create SimpleUniverse and Canvas3D usingSimpleUniverse.getPreferredConfiguration() GraphicsConfiguration class. Then create a BranchGraph. Add a TransformGraph as a child of BranchGraph. Then add your Shape3D as a child of TransformGraph. Shape3D must have 2 things: geometry(your point array) and appearance. From appearance, you make many specifications of material and lighting.
If you just use point array, you see only points. Should use TriangleStripArray or similar thing if you want to fill polygons or LineStripArray if you want lines.
Use TransformGroup to rotate&translate. Dont forget to add light too.
TransformGroup needs a Transform3D class as parameter to rotate and translate or scale.
If your Shape3D is a surface, you may give custom-color to it or use material and put a light near it otherwise you cannot see it. Dont forget to set lightsource bound range so light reaches the object.
  • PointArray--->Cloud-like shapes
  • LineArray--->For dashed-line
  • LineStripArray-->for lines
  • TriangleArray--->divorced triangles(for a surface)
  • TriangleStripArray--->neighboring triangles(for a surface)
  • TriangleFanArray---->like building triangles arount a point(for a surface)
  • QuadArray---->Need six quads to have a cube
  • QuadStripArray--->Can construct a cube with a smaller coordinate array
Another important thing:
simpleU.getViewingPlatform().getViewPlatform().setActivationRadius(300);
    SimpleU.getViewer().getView().setBackClipDistance ( 300.0 );
makes your viewing range even more far so object dont disappear when you move.
Attach mouse-interactions to your transform-group
    MouseRotate m1=new MouseRotate();
    MouseZoom m2=new MouseZoom();
    MouseTranslate m3=new MouseTranslate();
If you want to map your 1580 x 1050 image into your default 3D view range, you should divide the point coordinates by 1000. (or scale down to 1000th in transformgroup)
Look for tutorials:
Here, i tweaked your tutorial into energon.class
//skipped imports(char limit in this post)
public final class energon extends JPanel {


    int s = 0, count = 0;

    public energon() {
        setLayout(new BorderLayout());
        GraphicsConfiguration gc=SimpleUniverse.getPreferredConfiguration();
        Canvas3D canvas3D = new Canvas3D(gc);//See the added gc? this is a preferred config
        add("Center", canvas3D);

        BranchGroup scene = createSceneGraph();
        scene.compile();

        // SimpleUniverse is a Convenience Utility class
        SimpleUniverse simpleU = new SimpleUniverse(canvas3D);


        // This moves the ViewPlatform back a bit so the
        // objects in the scene can be viewed.
        simpleU.getViewingPlatform().setNominalViewingTransform();

        simpleU.addBranchGraph(scene);
    }
    public BranchGroup createSceneGraph() {
        BranchGroup lineGroup = new BranchGroup();
        Appearance app = new Appearance();
        ColoringAttributes ca = new ColoringAttributes(new Color3f(204.0f, 204.0f,          204.0f), ColoringAttributes.SHADE_FLAT);
        app.setColoringAttributes(ca);

        Point3f[] plaPts = new Point3f[4];

        for (int i = 0; i < 2; i++) {
            for (int j = 0; j <2; j++) {
                plaPts[count] = new Point3f(i/10.0f,j/10.0f,0);
                //Look up line, i and j are divided by 10.0f to be able to
                //see the points inside the view screen
                count++;
            }
        }
        PointArray pla = new PointArray(4, GeometryArray.COORDINATES);
        pla.setCoordinates(0, plaPts);
        Shape3D plShape = new Shape3D(pla, app);
        TransformGroup objRotate = new TransformGroup();
        objRotate.setCapability(TransformGroup.ALLOW_TRANSFORM_WRITE);
        objRotate.addChild(plShape);
        lineGroup.addChild(objRotate);
        return lineGroup;
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        JFrame frame = new JFrame();
        frame.add(new JScrollPane(new energon()));
        frame.setSize(300, 300);
        frame.setVisible(true);
        frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    }

Most important part is, you can use triangulator to get a real 3D shape using just point coordinates
        GeometryInfo ginfo=new GeometryInfo(GeometryInfo.POLYGON_ARRAY);
        Triangulator tr = new Triangulator();
        NormalGenerator normalGenerator = new NormalGenerator();
        Stripifier st = new Stripifier();  
        int [] iint=new int[]{4,4,4,4,4,4};-->each face of cube has 4 points
        ginfo.setStripCounts(iint);
        ginfo.setCoordinates(pts); 
        tr.triangulate(ginfo); // ginfo contains the geometry     
        normalGenerator.generateNormals( ginfo );
        st.stripify(ginfo);
        sh.setGeometry(ginfo.getGeometryArray()); // shape is a Shape3D.
        //now you can use Shape3D-type sh as a 3D-surface-containing shape
In the last example, you had to use the quadarray but now, you can do same with only using points and the triangulator:

Output:Same! you just give the coordinates of points and the face-vertex numbers
enter image description hereenter image description here
  • set the strip counts
  • set the coordinates(from your tiff)
  • triangulate
  • generate normals
  • stripify
  • .getGeometry(finished)
