Hi anthony,

clear

x = linspace(-3,3,100);
y = linspace(-3,3,100);
g = 1 - exp(-(x.^2));

f = 1 - exp(-(x.^2));
X = x;
Y(1,1:100) = x(1,50);
X(1,101:200) = x(1,50);
Y(1,101:200) = x;
Z(1,1:100) = f
Z(1,101:200) = f

for ind = 1:100
X(1,(200 + ind)) = x(1,ind);
Y(1,(200 + ind)) = x(1,ind);

end

Z(1,201:300) = f;

ind = 1;
indx = 1;
indy = 100;

while(ind <= 100)
X(1,(300 + ind)) = x(1,indx);
Y(1,(300 + ind)) = y(1,indy);

ind = ind + 1;
indx = indx + 1;
indy = indy - 1;
end

Z(1,301:400) = f;

X = X';
Y = Y';
Z = Z';
figure

zgrid = gridfit(X,Y,Z,x,x);

surf(x,x,zgrid);
