create a 3-D point plot
pointplot3d(v1, v2, v3, options)
set or list of three-dimensional points
n by 3 Matrix where n is any positive integer
v1, v2, v3
Vectors, all of the same length
(optional) equations of the form option=value where option is any of the available plot3d options, or one of connect, symbol, or color
The pointplot3d function is used to create a three-dimensional plot of points. The points that are to be plotted come from the set or list L, the Matrix A, or the Vectors v1, v2, and v3.
The list may be either a list of points p, where p is a list or Vector containing three numbers, or a flat list whose length is a multiple of three.
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 point. 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 three must have the same length.
If you have a large number of points, it is recommended that the data be provided as a Matrix with datatype set to float.
A common error is to provide a sequence of points without putting them in a list. Note that pointplot3d([1,2,3], [4,5,6], [7,8,9]) is interpreted as the points (1,4,7), (2,5,8) and (3,6,9), and not as the points (1,2,3), (4,5,6) and (7,8,9).
The option connect=true specifies that the points are to be connected by line segments. In this case, L should be a list to ensure a consistent ordering of the points. The value of this option is assumed to be true if the style=line or style=pointline option is provided.
The option symbol=s specifies the symbol used in the display. See the symbol entry in the plot3d/option help page for a list of available symbols.
The option color=s specifies the color of the points. The allowable values for s are given in the plot/color help page. A list or Vector of n colors, where n is the number of points, may also be provided.
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.

The following constructions are equivalent.
A ≔ 1,2,3,4,5|1,3,5,7,9|0,1,0,1,0.5
v1 ≔ 1,2,3,4,5
v2 ≔ 1,3,5,7,9
v3 ≔ 0,1,0,1,0.5
The commands to create the plot from the Plotting Guide are
