Paolo Uccello, for whom this program is named, was born in 1397 and lived and painted during the Italian Renaissance. He and the other artists of his time invented drawing systems which enabled them to represent three-dimensional space on a flat plane. UCCELLO is a software tool which makes "Solids of Revolution" like the ones Uccello drew by hand.
