Example -- Creating Graphics Objects

This code evaluates a mathematical function and creates three graphics objects using the property values specified as arguments to the figure, axes, and surface commands. MATLAB uses default values for all other properties.

Note that the surface function does not use a 3-D view like the high-level surf functions. Object creation functions simply add new objects to the current axes without changing axes properties, except the Children property, which now includes the new object and the axis limits (XLim, YLim, and ZLim), if necessary.

You can change the view using the camera commands or use the view command.
