Does not work anymore

17 Apr 2014 surf2stl Write STL file from surface data. Author: Bill McDonald Wesley

Hi, I am trying to get MATLAB to output STL files of chaotic systems (Rossler, Lorenz, Chua). The graphs are made from iterating x, y, and z in a for loop. So I converted the vectors into a matrix using the vec2mat command. It gave me the STL files but the lines have no thickness. How can I resolve this problem? I tried adding space below the graph but it just makes a cylinder shape and doesn't thicken the lines. Please advise.

L = 40*membrane(1,25);
[rows cols] = size(L);
x = 1:rows;
y = 1:cols;
surf2stl('logo.stl',x,y,L);

And voila! You can 3D print the Matlab logo! (or any other surface for that matter) =)

Thanks for the awesome code!

Please help I get a flat gray surface, is it because my x ,y, are vectors and not meshgrid?
