This add-in plots surfaces specified by equations of the form z = f(x,y)

General Usage Instructions

  1. The Add-In can be found under the CREATE panel on the SURFACE workspace.
  2. Enter an Equation of the form z = f(x,y). Equations are interpreted using the math python package so exponents must be expressed as pow(a,b) = a^b. Read more.
  3. Specify a domain in x and y.
  4. Select whether the plot should be a solid body or not, if so, specify what the base of the body is defined relative to and the offset from that reference.
  5. Select the step size. Smaller step sizes give higher resolution graphs but take longer to process.
  6. Select whether or not to hide sketches used to create the surface.
