3D Plot Tools

Version 1.1 fixes a bug in JMP 13 and allows multiple windows to move simultaneously.


This add-in creates animated gif images of 3D scatterplots, and rotates the plot using a method that may (or may not) be more intuitive than the method in the standard platform. Multiple plots can be rotated at the same time, which is useful when exploring the same graph colored multiple ways.

And here is what the mouse movement look like. Note how the z rotation does not change even with the 'tilt and rotate' option.  This keeps the plot 'right side up':
