Examples

Calling Sequence

polygonplot3d(L, options)

polygonplot3d(A, options)

polygonplot3d(v1, v2, v3, options)

Parameters

L

-

list of polygon vertices, each given as a 3-element list

A

-

n by 3 Matrix, where n is any positive integer

v1, v2, v3

-

Vectors, all of the same length

options

-

(optional) equations of the form option=value, where option is any of the available plot options 

Description

• 

The polygonplot3d command is used to create a 3-D plot of a polygon. The polygon's vertices are provided as the list L, the Matrix A, or the Vectors v1 and v2.

• 

The list L must contain 3-element lists or Vectors [x, y, z], each representing the numeric x-, y- and z-coordinates of a vertex.

• 

The Matrix must be n by 3, where n is any positive integer. Each row of the Matrix contains the x-, y- and z-coordinates of a vertex. If a 3 by n Matrix is given, with n not equal to 3, then it will be automatically transposed. The Vectors, representing the x-coordinates, y-coordinates and z-coordinates respectively, can have any length, but all must have the same length.

• 

Remaining arguments are interpreted as options which are specified as equations of the form option = value. These options are the same as those available for the plot3d command, as described in plot3d options.

• 

Multiple polygons may be plotted by providing a list containing polygons in the list or Matrix form, as described above. In this case, the color option value can be a list of n colors, where n is the number of polygons.
