Oh that it were that simple. The help page says triplets, the example cell defines a list of triplets. When I define triplets as below, I get said error about the wrong format. I implore you to cut and paste the text below into your local 5.2 installation and see the error for your self. thanks and regards, Nathan Moore On Oct 20, 2005, at 12:00 AM, David Annetts wrote: > Hi Nathan, > >> I'd like to plot a surface defined by a list of {x,y,z} >> triplets.
