I am trying to create a series of randomly distributed spheres in Matlab, three will be three sub-sets. I would like each subset to have a different color. I am using a structure because each sphere will also have different properties associated with it. I tried using colormap, and set(...'FaceColor'..) but am having some difficulty. Please Help.

for n = 1:100 Bslice.cell(n).index = n; Bslice.cell(n).type = 'Tyep1'; % Type2, Type3 Bslice.cell(n).location = round(rand(1, 3)*10); end

%% [x,y,z] = sphere;

for n = 1:10 hold on grid on surfl(x-Bslice.cell(n).location(1), y-Bslice.cell(n).location(2), z- Bslice.cell(n).location(3)) shading interp % colormap(hot(100)) end

Opportunities for recent engineering grads.

FaceColor and an RGB triple should work in theory; could you show an example of how you called it?
