I want to plot a shell layer structure in 3D space. I have three-dimensional coordinate vectors x(:,:,:), y(:,:,:), z(:,:,:) and a data vector V(:,:,:) that has nonzero values at the shell locations and is zero elsewhere. The closest image that I could find similar to what I want is this:
How can I do this? Let's say, I only need to plot the middle layer. The closest that I could do is to use:
But this creates a plot of scattered data points. Is there a way to get Matlab to create a surface out of the scatter points?

Hi Hadi,
I understand from your question that you want a better graph plot than scatter plot and preferably something continuous.
I guess the surface plot function should do the trick for you. Try implementing
Sample Snippet :
[X,Y] = meshgrid(1:0.5:10,1:20);
Z = sin(X) + cos(Y);
You might find the documentation very useful.
