Another one ...
Try this:
figure;surf(peaks);view(2);axis tight;shading interp;box on
set(gca,'BoxStyle','full','XAxisLocation','bottom')
Now try:
set(gca,'XAxisLocation','origin')
And that's ok!
I'm on Matlab R2017b under Windows 10 64 bits

Hi Luc,
The box is actually there but the surface is being rendered on top of it (because the axis is tight). You can render the rulers on top of the surface by setting the layer to 'top' on the axes.
a = gca; a.Layer = 'top'
Another workaround is to keep the rulers on layer 'bottom,' but increase the LineWidth of the axes. A value of 1.5 or greater should work.
