Hi Ben and Jens-Peer et al., Sorry for the delay in replying - I took so long the original post has expired, so I've started a new one. "Re: Easy way to 're-order' the axes in Plot3D" Many thanks for your suggestions. I tried both of them, but unfortunately niether of them worked. One of them gave a syntax error [the one with //(var->-var)...] and the other one did nothing to the graph. I'm not sure how to post notebooks here, or even if we're allowed, so I've uploaded them to my website: http://www.carter-hitchin.clara.co.uk/TestFlip1.nb http://www.carter-hitchin.clara.co.uk/TestFlip2.nb If you or anyone has time to spot what is wrong, I'd be very grateful. Many thanks, David. p.s. The two suggestions were: 1. gr = Graphics3D[Plot3D[Sin[x*y], {x, 0, Pi}, {y, 0, Pi}]] Show[gr /. Polygon[pnts_] :> Polygon[{{1, 0, 0}, {0, -1, 0}, {0, 0, 1}}.# & /@ pnts] ] 2. Plot3D[{x[t], y[t], z[t]} // (t -> -t) // Evaluate, {t, -200,0}]; p.p.s And my original question was: I've got this nice Plot3D surface, but unfortunately I want one of the axes to run from 200 to 1, instead of the natural 1 to 200. I've tried {S, 200, 1} instead of {S, 1, 200}, but that didn't work. The function is quite involved and I'd rather not change it. Effectively what I want to do is to mirror the whole surface in a vertical plane. Can anyone help me and think of a [hopefully simple] way to do this?
