Use a 2D filled polygon in a 3D plot

27 views (last 30 days)
Hi all,
I have a 3D plot of an aircraft, plotted with the surf function. I also have the nacelles in there as a surf. What I'd like to do, is plot a filled circle inside the engine, representing the fans. Normally you would use fill(x,y,c) to plot a 2D filled polygon, but is there a way to plot it in 3D at a specific location?

2D plots cannot be plotted at 3D locations. You can, though, use fill3() with a constant Z location.

Thank you! That was very easy, I wasn't aware of the existence of fill3()
