Allows users to import data from excel and easily create 3D graphs in Matlab. Capable of exporting and importing Z axis matrices, exporting pictures of the graphs, automatic labeling of the surfaces, and tools for comparing two different surfaces. Can be used as a visual aid or for analysis.

 This GUI can be used for many applications in many industries. For example, it can be used to simplify and streamline the design process where the characteristics of a component in a system is highly nonlinear. Using least square fit algorithm, the jumble of data becomes an intuitive 3D surface which can be rotated and the optimal size/speed/etc. can be chosen.

Go from excel to Matlab to .png pictures in a matter of minutes.

When I run the MainGUI.m file, the GUI buttons do not seem to execute any commands, can anyone help, thanks.

Deleted the xlsinfo functions which made this file not work on PC's. Now everyone can use it!

-Cross-platform compatibility bug: the xlsread function works differently on Macs then on PC's. If you are using a PC and have issues, try saving the file in the .CSV format and modifying the code to look for and accept CSV data files.
