FillColorDirection, FillColorDirectionX, FillColorDirectionY, FillColorDirectionZ

Direction of color transitions on surfaces

Value Summary

FillColorDirectionLibrary wrapper for "[FillColorDirectionX, FillColorDirectionY]" (2D), "[FillColorDirectionX, FillColorDirectionY, FillColorDirectionZ]" (3D)See below
FillColorDirectionX, FillColorDirectionY, FillColorDirectionZInheritedReal number


FillColorDirection determines the direction in which the color transitions for FillColorType = Dichromatic etc. take place.

When setting FillColorType to some other value than Flat or Functional, MuPAD® produces a "height-coloring." By default, this color method actually uses the height of a point. Using FillColorDirection, the axis along which the color method should be applied can be changed.


Example 1

By default, MuPAD uses height coloring along the z axis for 3D objects:

s := plot::Spherical([sin(r),thet/(r+1)+1, thet*r], 
                     r=0..1, thet=0..3*PI, Submesh=[2,2]):

By changing FillColorDirection, the color can be rotated on the object:

plot(s, FillColorDirection = [0, 1, 0])
