Hi,

I am new to 3D plotting and have a question about the axis control. I

am trying to create a plot which shows the x axis exactly horizontal

and the y axis vertical at the front, and the z axis leading into the

back of the screen. I have tried view([103 10]) which gives me an

effect close to what I want, but unfrotunatelly it also rotates the x

and y-axis.

This is the orientation I am trying to get.

    • Hi Christoph,

      Setting the axes "Projection" property to "Perspective" might yield the

      effect you are looking for:

      set(gca,'Projection','Perspective')

      -I hope this helps.
