Editor's Note: This file was selected as MATLAB Central Pick of the Week

Obliqueview transforms an axes to use an oblique projection instead of the default orthographic projection. Although oblique projections are distorted views, they are often useful for illustration purposes.

Obliqueview lets the user select a viewing plane ('xy','xz,'yx',etc) and angle for the receding axis. The foreshortening ratio can also be specified. The view can be changed by calling obliqueview with new parameters.

Obliqueview is designed to be used with oaxes, a central axis display. Oaxes is available through the MATLAB File Exchange at http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/30018 . If oaxes is not installed, obliqueview will still run, but with reduced functionality.
Note: obliqueview requires use version 2.0 or later of oaxes.
