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:


Click the plot to select it.


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


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


Move the slider to select from Matte or Glossy finish.
