How can I make the plot fill the entire plotting window?

I'm a new user and I enjoy MATLAB a lot. This is my first post.
I have found out how to make the plotting window fill the entire screen. But I have not yet found out how to make the plot fill the entire window.
figure('units','normalized','position',[1. 1. 1. 1.])
axis vis3d equal; view([-37.5,30]); camlight; grid on;
[X,Y,Z] = cylinder(); h=surf(X,Y,Z);
xlim([-2., 2.]); ylim([-2., 2.]); zlim([-2., 2.]);
xlabel('X X'); ylabel('Y Y'); zlabel('Z Z');
The unused area is not so big in this example but my plots would definitely improve by removing it. (A considerable area would be gained.) Here is a screenshot from plotting animation test-data:
I want to fill the empty space in the window, around the diagram. I would even like to put the corners of the diagram slightly outside the plotting window, since I do not draw in the corners. When small objects move around large areas I need this resolution to see them clearly.
Thank you

axes('Units', 'normalized', 'Position', [0 0 1 1])
before the "axis vis3d equal"
