Add or Change 3-D Plot Glossiness

• 

The Plot>Glossiness menu item specifies the glossiness of a plotted surface. The glossiness value controls the amount of light reflected from the surface.

• 

Reflections can be rendered only if point light sources are enabled. Either one of the built-in light models or a user specified light model with at least one light source must be enabled, using the lightmodel or light options or the Plot>Lighting menu options.

  

To add glossiness to a 3-D plot:

1. 

Click the plot to select it.

2. 

Ensure that the plot is using a light scheme. See worksheet/plotinterface/lighting.

3. 

From the Plot menu, select Glossiness. The Glossiness dialog opens.

4. 

Move the slider to select from Matte or Glossy finish.
