Well actually, you appented all the points. What I would like is to show all the points (70 points in one plot) at the same time (t=20) in one plot.
Plotting 3D points from numerous arrays
2 views (last 30 days)
I have 210 arrays each one representing the x,y,z coordinates of a point (70 points). My arrays are named Point_1_x, Point_1_y, Point_1_z, etc.
I want to plot a 3D plot of the 70 points at a specific time (assume 20,1 cell in all arrays.
Is there a way to write a loop for the whole procedure with i ranging from 1 to 70 to create this plot as automatically as possible?
Thank you in advance.

I don't have data to work with and see the validity of the result, but I guess you need something like
% create array by concatenating the vectors for each directions.
% assuming all Point_1_x, Point_1_y, Point_1_z, etc. are columns vectors.
AllXdat = ;
AllYdat = ;
AllZdat = ;
for i = 1:70
AllXdat = [AllXdat eval(sprintf('Point_%d_x',i))];
AllYdat = [AllYdat eval(sprintf('Point_%d_y',i))];
AllZdat = [AllZdat eval(sprintf('Point_%d_z',i))];
% define the time you want to plot, and get the corresponding spatial values,
% assuming the value fot t = 20 is at the 20th position in the vectors : Point_1_x(20),...
mytime = 20;
XatTime = AllXdat(mytime,:);
YatTime = AllYdat(mytime,:);
ZatTime = AllZdat(mytime,:);
% plot at the desired time
