This app was inspired by Daren Lee's 3D Waterfall Plot Demo. It has been updated to reflect recent upgrades to MATLAB's graphics system as well as Data Acquisition Toolbox's newer Session-Based Interface.
To run this app, download the .mlappinstall file and open MATLAB. Navigate to the directory containing the file and double click on the file. A popup dialog will appear asking if you would like to install the App. Select 'Yes' and the app will be installed in your Apps Tab. You are now ready to run the app, open the Apps Tab in the MATLAB Toolstrip and click on your new app. Enjoy!
Feel free to open up the code and make changes as you like. This App is intended to be a learning tool as well as an example of live data visualization in MATLAB.

@Jose (and anyone else that is interested)

For me the code got installed in a sub-directory of my user path (type "userpath" in the command window to see where this is).

Even though this program installs as an app it does not appear to have been created using the App Designer.
