** Plot lines and points in 3-D space. **

** PLOT3() is a three-dimensional analogue of PLOT (). **

** **

** **

** PLOT3(x,y,z), where x, y and z are three vectors of the same length, **

** plots a line in 3-space through the points whose coordinates are the **

** elements of x, y and z. **

** **

** **

** PLOT3(X,Y,Z), where X, Y and Z are three matrices of the same size, **

** plots several lines obtained from the columns of X, Y and Z. **

** **

** **

** Various line types, plot symbols and colors may be obtained with **

** PLOT3(X,Y,Z,s) where s is a 1, 2 or 3 character string made from **

** the characters listed under the PLOT command. **

** **

** **

** PLOT3(x1,y1,z1,s1,x2,y2,z2,s2,x3,y3,z3,s3,...) combines the plots **

** defined by the (x,y,z,s) fourtuples, where the x's, y's and z's are **

** vectors or matrices and the s's are strings. **

** **

** **

** Example: A helix: **

** **

** **

** t = 0:pi/50:10*pi; **

** plot3(sin(t),cos(t),t); **

** **

** **

** PLOT3 returns a column vector of handles to LINE objects, one **

** handle per line. The X,Y,Z triples, or X,Y,Z,S quads, can be **

** followed by parameter/value pairs to specify additional **

** properties of the lines. **
