plot

Plot parametric model

Description

example

plot(model) plots a model within the axis limits of the current figure.

plot(model,Name=Value) specifies options using one or more name-value arguments in addition to argument from previous syntax. For example, plot(model,Parent=gca) sets the color of the plot to red.

H = plot(___) plots a model and returns a handle H to surf, a 3-D shaded surface plot or patch, a filled polygon region.

Examples

collapse all

Load a MAT file containing a point cloud into the workspace.

Display the point cloud.

figure
pcshow(ptCloud)
title("Detect a Cylinder in a Point Cloud")

Set the maximum point-to-cylinder distance for cylinder fitting to 5mm.

maxDistance = 0.005;

Specify a region of interest (ROI) to constrain the fitting function.

roi = [0.4 0.6; -inf 0.2; 0.1 inf];
sampleIndices = findPointsInROI(ptCloud,roi);

Set the orientation constraint for the fitting function

referenceVector = [0 0 1];

Detect the cylinder in the specified ROI of the point cloud and extract it.

model = pcfitcylinder(ptCloud,maxDistance,referenceVector, ...
SampleIndices=sampleIndices);

Plot the model of the detected cylinder.

hold on
plot(model)

Load a point cloud into the workspace.

Display the point cloud and label the figure.

figure
pcshow(ptCloud)
title("Detect a sphere in a point cloud")

Set the maximum point-to-sphere distance for sphere fitting to 1cm.

maxDistance = 0.01;

Set the region of interest to constrain the search.

roi = [-inf,0.5;0.2,0.4;0.1,inf];
sampleIndices = findPointsInROI(ptCloud,roi);

Detect the globe in the point cloud and extract it.

[model,inlierIndices] = pcfitsphere(ptCloud,maxDistance,SampleIndices=sampleIndices);
globe = select(ptCloud,inlierIndices);

Plot the extracted globe.

figure
pcshow(globe)
title("Globe Point Cloud")

Load a MAT file containing a point cloud.

Display the point cloud into the workspace.

figure
pcshow(ptCloud)
title("Detect a Plane in a Point Cloud")

Set the maximum point-to-plane distance for plane fitting to 2cm.

maxDistance = 0.02;

Specify the normal vector plane for the fitted plane.

referenceVector = [0 0 1];

Set the maximum angular distance for the fitted plane to 5 degrees.

maxAngularDistance = 5;

Detect the plane, the table, in the point cloud and extract it.

model = pcfitplane(ptCloud,maxDistance,referenceVector,maxAngularDistance);

Plot the plane.

hold on
plot(model)

Input Arguments

collapse all

Parametric model returned by the cylinderModel, planeModel, or the sphereModel object.

Name-Value Arguments

Specify optional pairs of arguments as Name1=Value1,...,NameN=ValueN, where Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name-value arguments must appear after other arguments, but the order of the pairs does not matter.

Example: plot(model,Parent=gca) sets the output axes to the current axes in the current figure.

Output axes, specified as gca (the current axes) or axes (a custom set axes) for displaying the visualization.

Color of the plane, specified as a 1-by-3 RGB vector or a short or long color name.

Handle to a plot, returned as a surf 3-D shaded surface plot or as a patch filled polygon region.
