I don't need a x,y,z axis. A cube in free space only with vectors. I still need help.

Code:

```
\usetikzlibrary{arrows}
\begin{tikzpicture}[>=stealth',x=2cm,y=2cm,z=0.77cm]
\fill (0,0) circle (1.5pt);
\draw (0,0) -- (1,0) -- (1,1) -- (0,1) -- cycle;
\begin{scope}[shift={(0,0,1)}]
\draw (0,0) -- (1,0) -- (1,1) -- (0,1) -- cycle;
\end{scope}
\draw (0,0) -- (0,0,1) (0,1) -- (0,1,1) (1,0) -- (1,0,1) (1,1) -- (1,1,1);
\end{tikzpicture}
```

This is one way.
