I am stuck while writing this code. Could you give any advise? The matrix N might consist of 16 different values at maximum(0-16), depending on the previous codes.
x=-20:5:20;
y=-20:5:20;
z=40:5:80;
[X,Y,Z]=meshgrid(x,y,z)
h=0;
for i=1:1:length(x)
for j=1:1:length(y)
for k=1:1:length(z)
h=h+1
M(h,:)=[X(i,j,k), Y(i,j,k), Z(i,j,k)];
% N(h)=a_MATLAB_function([M(h,1); M(h,2); M(h,3) ],[0;0;0]);
end
end
end
N=[12 12 12 12 12 12 12 8 4 4 4 12 12 ]; % Matrix N's size is 1x729 actually.
% Here it is simplified as a shorter row.
NN = unique(N); NN_length=length(NN);
S=[35 50 100 200];
figure; hold on;
for i=1:1:NN_length
NNN(i,:)=find(N==NN(i))
scatter3(M(NNN(i,:),1),M(NNN(i,:),2),M(NNN(i,:),3),S(i))
end
hold off;
For the first value of i=1, it is fine. But later I receive error. Because while writing the second row of NNN, first row and second row dimension doesn't match. What can I do? Thanks in advance.

Is there a reason to collect NNN in an array?
for i = 1:NN_length
NNN = (N == NN(i)); % Without FIND: faster logical indexing
scatter3(M(NNN, 1), M(NNN, 2), M(NNN, 3), S(i))
end
If you do need NNN later on:
NNN = cell(1, NN_length)
for i = 1:NN_length
NNN{i} = (N == NN(i)); % Without FIND: faster logical indexing
scatter3(M(NNN{i}, 1), M(NNN{i}, 2), M(NNN{i}, 3), S(i))
end

thank you for sharing your knowledge.I am not using this installation and will try to solve my problem using Matlab online.

What are you trying to plot? What is M?
[n,nn,nnn]=unique(N);%;might want to look at the outputs here, they might help you

@David Hill , Sorry I forgot about M. Now I edited the codes. M is meshgrid and locations of points in 3D.
