Although there are many online and offline graphing calculators
available today only few are capable of plotting 3D graphs. Of those,
most are either too complex to use or too primitive to be useful.
there is a 3D graphing software that hits a right balance
between ease of use and complexity.
Plot 3D Cartesian Graphs
To plot a function that starts with z= simply type it down in the space
provided. After each keystroke the software updates the
graph view. The generated 3D graphs are beautifully rendered and shaded
3D Polar Functions
Switch to polar by selecting either Spherical or Cylindrical
coordinates. Polar functions start with r= and you can use Ctrl+1 and Ctrl+2 to insert delta and phi characters.
3D Parametric Functions
Select parametric option and then type
functions that include u and v variables. You can customize the range of
u and v in Draw Attributes. As soon as all 3 formulas are typed in
properly in front of x= and y= and z= the 3D graph that corresponds to
the parametric equation is plotted.
