Appearance Controls

If you select the Surface Profiler option from the red triangle menu of a modeling platform, the Appearance Control options are different than the Appearance Controls in the stand-alone Surface Plot platform. See Figure 5.8 for an example of what the Appearance Controls look like in a modeling platform.

Surface Plot Appearance Controls

The set of controls in the top right of the report enables you to specify the overall appearance of the surface plot.

Sheet, points

The setting for displaying sheets, points, and lines.

Isosurface

Changes the display to show isosurfaces. See Plotting Isosurfaces.

Show formula

Shows the formula edit box, which enables you to edit the formula of the surface. The formula edit box appears only if you specified a column that contains a formula in the launch window.

Resolution

A slider that affects how many points are evaluated for a formula. If the resolution is too coarse, a function with a sharp change might not be represented very well. However, if the resolution is set too high, evaluating and displaying the surface is slower than for lower resolutions.

Surface Profiler Appearance Controls

Figure 5.8 Appearance ControlsĀ 

The Appearance Controls in modeling platforms contain the following controls:

data points are

Contains the following options that control the appearance of the data points:

Off

Turns the data points off.

Surface plus Residual

Shows the difference between the predicted value and actual value on the surface.

Actual

Shows the actual data points.

Residual

Shows the residual values (if they are not off the plot).

Resolution

A slider that affects how many points are evaluated for a formula. If the resolution is too coarse, a function with a sharp change might not be represented very well. However, if the resolution is set too high, evaluating and displaying the surface is slower than for lower resolutions.

Orthogonal Projection

Changes the view of the graph, such that the axes form right angles.

Contour

Determines the placement of the contour lines on the plot in relation to the surface. Options are off, below, above, and on surface.
