RINEARN Graph 3D
RINEARN Graph 3D is an install-less free 3D graph plotting software available for plotting data from numerical files, data on spreadsheets, math expressions, and so on.
This software was reviewed by Vector (a famous software library&shop website in Japan) !
Available on various desktop OSes
RINEARN Graph 3D is the graph software developed in Java®, so you can use it on Microsoft® Windows®, Linux, and other OSes for PC. Furthermore, you can put the RINEARN Graph 3D in your USB memory, and use it on multiple PCs without installation.
For Microsoft Windows
To execute RINEARN Graph 3D, double-click "RinearnGraph3D_*.*.*.bat" (Type: "Windows Batch File", and "*" are version numbers) in the downaloded/extracted folder. When you first execute this software, you can optionally get the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) which is required to run (it will put in the "jre" folder of this software, and will not be installed in the system of your PC).
For Linux, etc.
To execute RINEARN Graph 3D, set the current directory (by "cd" command) to the downloaded/extracted folder, and input the following command:
If any error occurs and it indicates "java" command is not available, installing Java Runtime Environment (JRE) into your PC is required for executing this software. You might install a JRE of the OpenJDK project easily by "apt" command and so on, but please note that "headless" version is not available for this software.
For both of Windows and Linux, you can use RINEARN Graph 3D on the command-line terminal as "ring3d" command, by adding the path of "bin" folder of this software to the environment variable: "Path" or "PATH".

Plot data from spreadsheets easily
You can plot data on spreadsheet software (for example: Microsoft® Excel®) to 3D graphs very easily.
At first, download RINEARN Graph 3D and launch. Next, copy data from a spread sheet application. Then right-click on the graph screen of RINEARN Graph 3D and select "Paste Data". The data will be plotted as a 3D graph on the screen.
Data can be pasted from general text editors such as notepad. Ofcourse, RINEARN Graph 3D can load data from files. Please see the guide page of Data File Formats as a reference of supported data formats.
3D Graphics Engine
RINEARN Graph 3D equipped with original 3D graphics engine of software-rendering type. This engine can render high-resolution mesh data such as 100x100, but it does not require any 3D graphics accelerator devices for your PC.
This engine can render 3D graphs with realistic lighting/shading effects for supporting you to recognize complicated shape of 3D graphs easily.
Smoothing of Rough Data
RINEARN Graph 3D supports tessellation feature for smoothing of rough mesh data. This feature complements vertices of the mesh data and divides a polygon into many pieces of small polygons for high-quality smoothing.
Of course you can switch ON/OFF of this feature.
Easy & Simple Interface
User interface of RINEARN Graph 3D is simple and easy to handle. It composed of classical pull-down style menu bar and mouse actions. You can get used to it soon.
RINEARN Graph 3D can play the graphs as animations. The animation feature supports various mode. You can set index of each point as time, or set index of data-series as time, etc.
The animation feature can available by clicking "Tool" > "Animation" menu from the menu bar at the top of the window.
Plot Math Expressions
RINEARN Graph 3D equipped with math-plotting tools which plot various forms of mathematical expressions (formula) to 3D graph.
Math-plotting tools are implemented in VCSSL, which is the script language supported by RINEARN Graph 3D by default. You can run the VCSSL script alone if you want, so you can download and use math-plotting tools alone from following pages:
|3D Graph Tool for Plotting Expressions of the Form of "z = f(x,y)"|
|A simple tool which plots the expression (formula) of the form of "z = f(x,y)" to the 3D graph.|
|3D Graph Tool for Plotting & Animating Expressions of the Form of "z = f(x,y,t)"|
|A simple tool which plots the expression (formula) of the form of "z = f(x,y,t)" to the 3D graph, and plays it as animation.|
|3D Graph Tool for Plotting & Animating Parametric Expressions of the Form of "x(t), y(t), z(t)"|
|A simple tool which plots parametric expressions (formulas) of the form of "x(t), y(t), z(t)" to the 3D graph, and plays it as animation.|
On the RINEARN Graph 3D, you can use above math-plotting tools from the menu bar at the top of the window. At first, click "Program" menu from the menu bar, and choose "MathPlot" folder. Then select a script file of a math-plotting tool, e.g., "z(x,y)", "z(x,y,t)", or "x(t),y(t),z(t)", etc.
You can use RINEARN Graph 3D right now.
Please extract a zip file downloaded from the above link. Then double-click "RinearnGraph3D_*.*.*.bat (Windows Batch File)", or execute "RinearnGraph3D.jar (Executable Jar File)" on the command-line terminal. » Details
