This PDF describes code for displaying jzy3d OpenGL-based 3D graphics in MATLAB. Jzy3d is an open-source 3D graphics library. See http://www.jzy3d.org/
Code to run these demos is available as a Java jar file at
(N.B. All dependencies are either distributed as standard with MATLAB or included in this jar).
jzy3d uses the JOGL Java bindings to the OpenGL API to generate 3D graphics in Java. These graphics are easily generated in MATLAB and can readily be added to MATLAB figures. For the sphere in the illustration:
>> import kcl.waterloo.graphics3D.jzy3d.Factory.*
>> f = figure;
>> [comp, container] = javacomponent(gr);
>> set(container,'Units', 'normalized','Position', [0 0 1 1]);
