2D Matrix revolution
8 views (last 30 days)
How can I revolutionize a 2D matrix around an axis to obtain a solid?
Supose a NxN matrix. In each row are the points of a kind of gaussian curve with less amplitude and higher width. Plotting this surface shows something like a half bell that decays to zero. (See Bottom)
I want to obtain a 3D image revolutionazing that matrix, so the solid looks like a complete bell, or a mexican hat.
Notice that each curve in the matrix rows are different.
I have already try with cylinder(), but i can't define the rotation axis, and the result is a segmented solid.
Possible solutions so I can get the 3D image and define the rotation axis?
Thanks a lot
The surface to revolutioniye looks like this:

Use cylinder for each curve separately:
z = linspace(-1,1,20); % axis
r = sqrt(1-z.^2); % radius
[x,y,~] = cylinder(r,length(z)-1); % convert to cylinder system
zz = repmat(z',[1 20]); % create 2D matrix for Z matrix
surf(x,y,zz) % sphere
