Re: Labeling axes in VectorFieldPlot3D?

The following works: VectorFieldPlot3D[B, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, {z, 0.01, 1}, VectorHeads -> True, Axes -> True, AxesLabel -> {x, y, z}] You had to put in Axes -> True. However, the Axes options do appear in red and that is because WRI did not define the options for VectorFieldPlot3D properly for use in the SyntaxInformation statement. Nevertheless, they work. Those who have Presentations and want much nicer looking 3D arrows, with colored arrowcones, can use: Needs["Presentations`Master`"] Draw3DItems[ {ColorData["Legacy"]["IndianRed"], VectorFieldDraw3D[B, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, {z, 0.01, 1}, VectorHeads -> False, ScaleFunction -> (#/5 &)] /. Line[{tail_, head_}] :> Arrow3D[tail, head, {0.30, 0.07, 12, "AbsoluteWidth"}, {AbsoluteThickness[1], Black}]}, NeutralLighting[0.2, 0.6, 0.1], NiceRotation, Axes -> True, AxesLabel -> {x, y, z}, ImageSize -> 400] -- David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ "Jerry" <Jer75811 at yahoo.com> wrote in message news:fq3b21$g3d$1 at smc.vnet.net... > This works OK in V6 > > << "VectorFieldPlots`" > > m = {1, 0, 0}; > r = {x, y, z}/Sqrt[x^2 + y^2 + z^2]; > B = (3 (m.r) r - m) > VectorFieldPlot3D[B, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, {z, 0.01, 1}, > VectorHeads -> True] > > From Options[VectorFieldPlot3D] I see AxesLabel -> None > listed.
