Hi, I have a set of 720 measurements at locations (x,y,z), each associated with a value (f). The y is constant for all locations. So I can generate a ListContourPlot quite easily and nicely. Now I want to show the contour in 3D. This means essentially I want to show a contoured plane in 3D. I want to do this in 3D because I want to add other sets of measurements which are at different (x,y,z) locations (other planes), subsequently. How can this be done? I tried ListContourPlot3D, however it tells me this (which I don't understand): ListContourPlot3D::invpts: "\!\(\* StyleBox[\"\"\", \"MT\"]\)-- Message text not found -- Can anybody tell what this message means (or what I am doing wrong)? What excatly can I adjust with the option Contours? The help says "how many or what contour surfaces to show". Does that mean, for my first try with the one set of 720 measurements I would put Contours->{1}? Thank you, Claus
