The Cube Plot () plots 3-dimensional Cartesian positions in a 3-d space.

The positional coordinates are X, Y and Z. To control the direction and linear/logarithmic scaling of the axes, see the Coords tab of the Axes control.

The cube plot offers the following plot controls:

As well as the standard actions, this window additionally provides the following toolbar button:

and Subsets menu item:

Note that use of the Auto, Density and Weighted shading modes can be confusing in 3 dimensions with multiple datasets. This is because pixels based on density along a line of sight are not located at any point on that line, so shaded pixels can't appear at the "right" place in the 3-d space. The same applies to a lesser extent with contours. They work fine with a single dataset though.

See the Window Overview for features common to all plotting windows. The following subsections describe navigation and axis configuration.
