01 Jul 2014 Spider plot tool Plots matrix column data in a spider plot. Author: michael arant

Hello Steffen
Yes but it is a user action. "X" in the outputs is the axes handles. From there you can edit the axes using get and set. It could have been done from the command line but I arbitrarily left that out. The complexity vs. adaptability compromise.

Thanks
Michael

Thanks Tommy. Actually, an earlier version did have a division like that. But when you need to compare 0 to 0 (or numerical noise), it breaks down...

Brian: You are correct on the function handle issue. I never planned on that type of structure. Seems that this tool is due for an overhaul.....

M and K are always NxN. C is always NxM. Thus A is NxN and B is NxM

M*x_dot=K*x+C*u
x_dot=M\K*x + M\C*u
x_dot=A*x+B*u

The “A” matrix is the relationship between states and their time derivatives (continuous model) or the current states and the states at the next time step (discreet model). “B” is the input matrix to the system.

A few users with long legend labels have suggested replacing the location in the legend call (line 222) from ‘northeastoutside’ to ‘best’. This does improve appearance in some cases. I’ll leave it to the user to decide which placement to use.

Hello Michael,

Thanks for quick answer.
I already tried to edit with get and set, obviously I made a mistake.
Maybe I have to change "ca" not "x"?

Is it possible to plot more then two positions after decimal point?

And now that I've opened the function for the first time, I see it's done already.

That's what I get for posting in a hurry.
