3D plot from 3D matrix

13 views (last 30 days)
I read through the forums to help answer my questions before submitting a question. Eventhough there were similar questions asked, I do not believe that my question was answered.
I have a 200x200x600 matrix that needs to be plotted. The matrix contains potential data in a grid cube, The plot is basically a 3D x,y,z grid that contains potential data at those each (x,y,z) point. My question is how would one.
Surf requires (X,Y,Z) co-ordinates and Patch does not seem to be fitting. Any help appreciated!

Hi Adam, thank you for your reply - I am unable to understand what you are saying. The co-ordinates basically are the vertices of a cube and each vertex has an assigned potential value. This potential value is saved in the 3D matrix and I am trying to plot it to interept the results.

I see what you mean. So, if I understand correctly, you want to plot a solid object. How will you see beyond its surface? Since it's a rectangle, how will you see point (50,50,50) for example?
Here's a way to plot a 3D scatter plot but I don't think this is what you're looking for.
data = reshape(1:175, 5,5,7); % Fake data, 5x5x7
[X,Y,Z] = meshgrid(1:size(data,1), 1:size(data,2),1:size(data,3));
scatter3(X(:),Y(:),Z(:), 80, data(:),'filled')

The slice function may also be of interest
