when I plot or surf, what's different between axis square and axis equal ?
Mahdi on 27 May 2014
From this page:
axis equal sets the aspect ratio so that the data units are the same in every direction. The aspect ratio of the x-, y-, and z-axis is adjusted automatically according to the range of data units in the x, y, and z directions.
axis square makes the current axes region square (or cubed when three-dimensional). This option adjusts the x-axis, y-axis, and z-axis so that they have equal lengths and adjusts the increments between data units accordingly.

Do you know the formula to set your axes to be square?

Hi, I have a 3D plot, I set axis([-100 100 -80 120 -50 150]) followed by axis equal. That means I have equal range of data in all directions and figure should look like a cube but hight looks larger than bottom witdhs on my screen? why?
