Use a 3D scatterplot to explore the potential relationships among three variables. When you create a 3D scatterplot, you usually display predictor variables on the x-axis and the y-axis and the response variable on the z-axis. For example, you may want to examine how temperature and humidity affect the drying time of paint, or how horsepower and tire pressure affect a vehicle's fuel efficiency.
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.
|Rotate the graph clockwise or counterclockwise about the x-axis.|
|Rotate the graph clockwise or counterclockwise about the y-axis.|
|Rotate the graph clockwise or counterclockwise about the z-axis.|
|Return the graph to its original position and zoom.|
When you click a button, a preview window pops up to show exactly how the graph will spin.
