Below is a program fragment that does what I think you want done.  There might
be a slick one line way of doing it or maybe something visually stunning using
object graphics but nothing currently leaps to mind.


n = 4
a = randomu(seed,n,n,n) gt 0.5
surface, dist(n), /nodata, zr=[0,n-1], /save

for j = 0,1 do begin
  wh = where(a eq j)
  x = wh mod n
  y = wh / n mod n
  z = wh / n^2
  for i = 0, n_elements(wh)-1 do $
