so, below each plot3 commant what line i have to write to do this..

In MATLAB, "figure" and "window" are the same thing: "figure" is MATLAB's term for windows.

You can have multiple axes in the same window, though, and you can have multiple lines on any axes.

If you want two plots on the same axes, then you can use

 a = [2 3 7];
 hold on
 a = [6 3 4];

or better,

a = [2 3 7];
b = [6 3 4];
plot3( a(1), a(2), a(3), 'r.', b(1), b(2), b(3), 'r.')

Yes, what you given works correctly for two plots on same axes.. But, i mean to ask is on same GUI means on two different axes.. Which i think requires use of handle..

Then just follow the instructions from the link I gave, to parent the plot3() against the appropriate axes.

a = [2 3 7];
plot3(FirstAxesHandle, a(1), a(2), a(3), 'r.')


plot3(a(1), a(2), a(3), 'r.', 'Parent', FirstAxesHandle)
