With Groups Create a 3D scatterplot that displays predictor variables on the x-axis and y-axis and the response variable on the z-axis, divided into groups. By default, this toolbar only appears when a 3D scatterplot, 3D surface plot, or 3D wireframe plot is active. Rotate the graph clockwise or counterclockwise about the x-axis. Choose data display elements The following images show elements that you can display on a 3D plot. This gives it the appearance of being above and somewhat behind and to the right of the graph. Adding project lines helps you visualize each point’s position in three-dimensional space.

Click each button once to rotate the graph in small increments. Use the following buttons on the 3D Graph Tools toolbar to rotate the graph. By using this site you agree to the use of cookies for analytics and personalized content. On the Box Options tab, select a ratio. See the following for examples of different light positions. In this example, z for Light 1 is increased to 2, so it is higher above the graph. Note When you click a button, a preview window pops up to show exactly how the graph will spin.

Data points that tend to rise as other data points tend to decline suggests a negative correlation.

Return the lights to their original positions. Rotate the graph clockwise or counterclockwise about the x-axis. Change the box appearance On the Attributes tab, you can edit the fill type, fill color, line type, line color, and line size. Use the following xcatter on the 3D Graph Tools toolbar to rotate the graph. Rotate the graph clockwise or counterclockwise about the z-axis. Create a 3D scatterplot that displays predictor variables on the x-axis and y-axis and the response variable on the z-axis, divided into groups.

For more information on editing these graph features, including how to change a surface plot to a wireframe plot, go to the following topics.

Example of 3D Scatterplot Learn more about Minitab Click each button one time to rotate the lights in small increments.

In This Topic Rotate the plot Adjust the surface brightness Rotate the surface lights Adjust the relative positions of the surface lights. Rotate the graph clockwise or counterclockwise about the z-axis.

For more information, go to Create a 3D scatterplot with groups. The surface of the 3D surface plot is illuminated in areas so that you can better see surface features.

## Create a 3D scatterplot with groups

For more information, go to Viewing a 3D scatterplot. Click the 3D scatterplot to activate it.

Adjust the surface brightness The surface of the 3D surface plot is illuminated in areas so that you can better see surface features. Simple Create a 3D scatterplot that displays predictor variables on the x-axis and y-axis and the response variable on the z-axis. To select elements when you create the graph, click Scarter View.

## Viewing 3D surface plots and 3D wireframe plots

Rotate the graph clockwise or counterclockwise about the x-axis. You can also change the brightness of the surface, and the number and position of the surface lights. Return the graph to its original position and zoom. See the following for examples of different light positions.

Adjust the relative positions of the surface lights The x- y- and z- coordinates for the positions of lights on a 3D surface plot are expressed relative to the center of the data region, which is coordinate 0 0 0. By default, this toolbar only appears when a 3D scatterplot, 3D surface plot, or 3D wireframe plot is active. Groups are represented by different colors and symbols. Note When you click a button, a preview window pops up to show exactly how the graph will spin. Adding project csatter helps you visualize each point’s position in three-dimensional space.

However, heating at the longest intervals combined with the highest temperatures also results in low scores because the food becomes over-cooked. Predictor values on the x- and y-axes. By using this site you agree to the use of cookies for analytics and personalized content.

Using the 3D scatterplot, you can view only the actual data values, with no interpolation between the data points such as in a contour plot or 3D surface plot. Use a 3D surface plot or a 3D wireframe plot to examine the relationship between a response variable Z and two predictor variables X and Yby viewing a three-dimensional surface of the predicted response. The coordinates for the default positions are: Click the 3D surface plot or 3D wireframe plot to activate it.

Heating the dinner at shorter time intervals results in under-cooked product and low quality scores. To apply the existing group attributes to a new element, select Apply same groups of current displays to added displays when you add the element. Rotate the graph clockwise or counterclockwise about the y-axis. For example, the following scatterplot shows the relationship between quality, time, and temperature.

You can change the brightness of the surface, and the number and position of up to three surface lights. For more information, go to Adding project lines to a graph. Rotate the graph to view the plot from different angles and explore possible relationships in the data.

Toolbar item Action Rotate the graph clockwise or counterclockwise about the x-axis. You can rotate 3D surface and 3D wireframe plots to view them from different angles. Adding project lines helps you visualize each point’s position in three-dimensional space. Rotate the graph to view the plot from different angles and explore possible relationships in the data.
