Examples and How To

Multifaceted Patches

This example shows how to define a 3-D patch object and illustrates flat and interpolated face coloring.

Specify patch coloring if you do not want the default white face color and black edge color. Specify the coloring using various patch properties.

Interpreting Indexed and Truecolor Data

Patch color data is interpreted as either indexed color data or truecolor data.
