Rotate a 3D scatterplot

Use the 3D Graph Tools toolbar to rotate 3D graphs. By default, this toolbar only appears when a 3D scatterplot, 3D surface plot, or 3D wireframe plot is active.

  1. Click the 3D plot to activate it.
  2. If the 3D Graph Tools toolbar is not visible, choose Tools > Toolbars > 3D Graph Tools.
  3. Use the following items on the 3D Graph Tools toolbar to rotate the graph. Click a button one time to rotate the graph in small increments. Click and hold a button for continuous rotation.
