When two datasets sharing a common boundary were "Union"ed and Flattened such that it now has the form { {x1,y1,z1}, {x2,y2,z2}, {x3,y3,z3}, ... , {x99,y99,z99} } ListSurfacePlot3D[theabovelist] gave the following error message: LinkObject::linkd LinkObject[delaunay, 2, 2] is closed; the connection is dead. Is this error related to the illustrative test example below? In[1] := AppendTo[$Path, "/usr/local/TWJ_Packages"] In[2] := <<ExtendGraphics`SurfaceGraphics3D` In[3] := data1 = Table[{x/100, y/1000., 0.25 x}, {x,-1,2},{y,2,4}] In[4] := data2 = Table[{x/100, y/1000., 0.25 x}, {x,2,2},{y,2,4}] In[5] := dataunion = Union[data1, data2] In[6] := data1flat = Flatten[data1,1] In[7] := data2flat = Flatten[data2,1] In[8] := dataunionflat = Flatten[dataunion,1] Now, ListSurfacePlot3D[data1] gives correct plot while ListSurfacePlot3D[data1flat] gives wrong plot (opposite to our intuition, since syntax for that of data1 is supposedly incorrect). Curiously, ListSurfacePlot3D[data2flat] resulted in same error message as my real data, though ListSurfacePlot3D[data2] has no error message. ListSurfacePlot3D[dataunion] is correct while ListSurfacePlot3D[dataunionflat] is wrong. Even stranger,when the limit in data2 is changed to {x,2,4}, the resultant ListSurfacePlot3D[dataunionflat] is now correct, inspite of the fact that ListSurfacePlot3D[data1flat] is still wrong. The original data2 might result in an error because of {x,2,2}. But what about the other errors? They don't even seem to be consistent. And to reiterate, why did my real data give that error message when the component datasets (also Flatten) making it give correct plots? THANK YOU very much in advance for any help suggested. P.S. IBM RISC 6000 (AIX3.2.5); Mma v2.2; ExtendGraphics (obtained by ftp "MathSource" last week)installed fine as per p.686 of Mathematica Graphics; *.tm compiled. (In my real data, each z arises only from a particular value of x and y). Respectfully yours, Alto Benedicto adbened at aruba.ccit.arizona.edu
