Create 4-by-4 transform matrix
M = makehgtform
M = makehgtform('translate',[tx ty
tz])
M = makehgtform('scale',s)
M = makehgtform('scale',[sx,sy,sz])
M = makehgtform('xrotate',t)
M = makehgtform('yrotate',t)
M = makehgtform('zrotate',t)
M = makehgtform('axisrotate',[ax,ay,az],t)
Use makehgtform to create transform matrices for translation, scaling, and rotation of graphics objects. Apply the transform to graphics objects by assigning the transform to the Matrix property of a parent transform object.
M = makehgtform returns an identity transform.
M = makehgtform('translate',[tx ty tz]) or M = makehgtform('translate',tx,ty,tz) returns a transform that translates along the x-axis by tx, along the y-axis by ty, and along the z-axis by tz.
M = makehgtform('scale',s) returns a transform that scales uniformly along the x-, y-, and z-axes.
M = makehgtform('scale',[sx,sy,sz]) returns a transform that scales along the x-axis by sx, along the y-axis by sy, and along the z-axis by sz.
M = makehgtform('xrotate',t) returns a transform that rotates around the x-axis by t radians.
M = makehgtform('yrotate',t) returns a transform that rotates around the y-axis by t radians.
M = makehgtform('zrotate',t) returns a transform that rotates around the z-axis by t radians.
M = makehgtform('axisrotate',[ax,ay,az],t) Rotate around axis [ax ay az] by t radians.
Note that you can specify multiple operations in one call to makehgtform and the MATLAB^{®} software returns a transform matrix that is the result of concatenating all specified operations. For example,
m = makehgtform('xrotate',pi/2,'yrotate',pi/2);
is the same as
mx = makehgtform('xrotate',pi/2); my = makehgtform('yrotate',pi/2); m = mx*my;
