3D Plot 
(Graphic Tools)
Computer graphics are better for
understanding many types of data

In these sections you can find many
stepbystep commented guides to
easily develop 3D plots. If you are not familiar with tridimensional
graphics in Matlab, I recommend you start from Part 1;
otherwise, go to the link of your interest.
Part
1 (view, grid,
subplot)
Matlab provides many powerful instructions for the visualization of 3D
data. 
The instructions provided include tools to graph wireframe
objects, 3D curves,
surfaces...
Part
2 (meshgrid,
plot3, meshc, surfc)
The 3D graph functions intended for plotting meshes and surfaces 'mesh'
and 'surf',
and their several variants 'meshc',
'meshz', 'surfc', and
'surfl',
take multiple optional input arguments...
Part
3 (sphere,
plot3, mesh)
In this part, we demonstrate the use of the function 'sphere'. We are
going to draw a unit sphere centered at the origin and generated by
matrices x, y and z, of size 31 x 31 each...
Part
4 (meshgrid,
figure, contour3, mesh,
surfc, and surfl)
In this example we make a summarization
of the use of the following 3D
plot instructions: meshgrid,
figure,
contour3,
mesh,
surfc,
and surfl.
It is better if you've already read Parts 1 to 3...
Pie
Charts
In the expression 'pie3(V,
explode, labels)', 'explode'
specifies whether to separate a slice from the center of the pie chart.
V(i,j)
is appart from the center of the pie chart if explode(i,j) is
nonzero...
3D
Animations
We’re going to experiment with simple
animation in 3D. We are going to work with a sphere and are going
to rotate
our view angle. In the second experiment, we’re going to draw a paraboloid, change
its size and rotate...
Summary of 3D Graphics
There are many facilities for
visualization
of 3D information or data (x, y, z).
The
facilities include builtin functions for plotting wireframe objects,
spacecurves,
shaded surfaces...
Solids of Revolution
Define a profile and revolve it about the xaxis. Use the cylinder
function...
3D Polygons
Draw several faces to create or model a box...
