Starting with Origin 8.5, 3D vector plots can be created from XYZ XYZ data that specifies the start point and the end point of a vector. Alternately, you can create a 3D vector from XYZ dXdYdZ data, which plots the vector dXdYdZ from the starting point XYZ. After you create a 3D vector graph, you can easily do the following things within the 3D Vector tab below:
Specify whether to enable 3D Vectors. If you have created a 3D Vector graph from the toolbar or main menu, the check box will be automatically enabled.
Select a vector color from the Color button.
Choose Solid (default) or one of the dash/dot line styles.
Type or select the desired vector width in the Width combination box. Units are measured in points.
Scale the lengths of the arrowheads according to changes in magnitude of the vectors. Available options include:
Determines the length of the arrowheads. Units are measured in points.
Determines the arrowhead angles in degrees.
Select the Closed radio button to display filled arrowheads.
Select the Open radio button to display hollow (transparent) arrowheads.
Select or type a value by which to scale the length of the vectors. For example, type .5 to draw the vectors at half their original lengths.
