Hi, do you happen to have an example using this custom function? I have my X, Y and Z matrices with which I am generating my surface.

See the examples in trisurf() and tetramesh()
Both of them return patch handles.
For example if you used trisurf() you could extend the patch by adding on a rectangular base by adjusting the patch() properties.

Can we assume that the base area is strictly rectangular? For example surf() can be used with x y coordinates such that it draws an oval (for example), and constructing a nice base for that is a bit messy
