Keep Shape (3D Bars)

Specify whether to keep the shape (i.e. the aspect ratio of the bar width in X and Z direction for XYY 3D Bars plot) of 3D Bars graph.

When the Keep Shape box is unchecked,

  • XYZ 3D Bars plot: display X Direction Bar Width(in %) and Y Direction Bar Width(in %) sliders
  • XYY 3D Bars plot: display X Direction Bar Width(in %) and Z Direction Bar Width(in %) sliders

X/Y/Z Direction Bar Width(in %)(3D Bars)

These sliders are used to control the width of the bar on X/Y/Z direction, on a scale from 0 to 100. This value is a percent of the bar width.
100 means there is no spacing between the bars in that direction.
0 means the bar will be displayed as a plane in that direction.

Width (in %)

For the XYZ 3D Bars graph, checking Keep Shape box makes this check box available. Adjust the bar width in both X and Y directions.

For 3D XYY graphs(3D Wall/3D Waterfall/3D Ribbons), adjust the wall/ribbon width in the Z direction. For 3D waterfall graphs, the width is set to 0 by default.

Base Plane at

Specify the base line at Zero or minimum of Y axis(XYY 3D Bars plot) or Z axis(XYZ 3D Bar plot).

Shift in Z by percent of scale range, 0=bottom, 100=top (XYZ 3D Bars)

Check this check box to enter a number between 0 and 100 and shift the base plane along the Z axis.
