Combining three matrices into one

Dear friends, I need a bit of help. I have a set of values "PFscan.csv". It contains 70 columns x 1800 rows. This values represent z, and should be connected with r and t data, acting as a x and y. To create a x,y,z set with same dimensions I've made a matrices M1 and M2 from r and t, both containing 70 columns x 1800 rows. The goal is to combine this three sets into one matrix, which will consecutively contain (x,y,z)i. Hence matrix M3. So the questions are: How can I export this as .csv or .txt while being able to maintain order; x1,y1,z1, x2,y2,z2, etc.? How can I plot multiple datasets into one 3D graph by using for loop? And to convert this large x,y,z set to polar plot? Thanks!

I may not be completely sure what you are after, but I think the attached example (5.0) does something close.

Its unclear to me what kind of matrices you'd like to create but maybe the attached Prime5 file can help with plotting the data

Dear Werner, Can you integrate your approach into a new file I've submitted? I used DJF routine to create data-file that can be exported to other software. However, I really like your approach since it enables fast visualization of data within Prime5. I tried to do this myself, but your undocumented trick (not anymore :)) stopped working for some reason Thanks, zjv

Not sure which problem you ran into - I don't see any error or that you copied any necessary regions into your sheet .

You don't need to use the undocumented trick I mentioned to create the necessary vectors. You already did it using normal program routines.

So simply replace my "vec_r" for your "rad" and you may create "vec_t"  using your  "theta" by simply writing "vec_t:= theta*deg" as the values you provide obviously are in degree and not radians.

BTW, you may created the necessary vectors more streamlined as shown below

P.S.: IN case you didn't notice it - the trick mentioned was to define a range and immediately follow it by an evaluation (= sign). This turns the range into a vector of values. If you don't use the = sign it won't work.

The standard way to create a vector is like shown above.

Hi Werner, I don't know why but I still had problems with integrating your part with my document. For some reason, the part shown in image below was not possible to calculate (rows(vec_r) and rows(vec_t) was reporting an error ???). However, when used in your document alone, everything worked correctly. Thus, I decided to split file - one for exporting data (merging parts from DJF) and other for plotting (your approach). Thanks!

Hard to say why it failed without seeing the file with the error.

 

BTW, your description does not correspond to the data structure you create:

Werner, thanks for the comment, I haven't noticed an error before. Now it is corrected. The file is attached. I still have a problem with vec_r and vec_t error like as shown in attached image.

The problem is that you defined variables "rows" and "cols" and therefore the built in identically named functions are not available anymore.

Solution: Use different names for your variables. As variable names are case sensitive you may even call them "Rows" and "Cols" if you like.
