Data Requirements

Select at least one Y column (or a range from at least one Y column). Ideally, select at least two Y columns (or a range of at least two Y columns). If the Y column(s) has an associated X column, the X column is used; otherwise, the worksheet's default X values are used.

Creating the Graph

Select required data.

From the menu, choose Plot: 3D XYY: 3D Waterfall Z:Color Mapping.


Click the 3D Waterfall Z:Color Mapping button on the 3D and Contour Graphs toolbar.

3D waterfall with Z color mapping is an OpenGL-based 3D graph. The Y values in each column define an XY face with white fill color. All XY faces are arranged in the Z direction by the values in a specified label row. Color mapping is applied to the lines in Z direction.
