B.13 plot3d: Old-style 3D Scatter Plot

This section describes a deprecated command. It still works, but you are advised to use the more capable plot2cube or plot2sphere instead.

plot3d performs three-dimensional scatter plots, sending the output to a graphical display or writing it to a file in some vector or bitmapped graphics format. You need to supply it with values for one or more X, Y and Z datasets, in terms of table columns, and it will generate a plot with a point for each row. There are many options available to configure the detailed appearance of the plot, but in its simplest form invocation is quite straightforward. See Section 9 for more discussion on use of the plotting commands.
