Menus

In this article, we will explain about all menus at the menu bar of RINEARN Graph 3D.


File Menu

Open File

The menu item to open and plot graphs. Please specify paths of all files you want to plot by clicking "OPEN" button for all files you want to plot, and then click "PLOT" button to plot them.

Open Data

The menu item to plot data on the clipboard copied from spreadsheets, text files, etc. Please paste data to the textarea from the clipboard and click "PLOT" to plot it.

* This menu item is also available from right-clicking menus.

Save Image

The menu item to export the current graph image to a file. Please input the file name to "File Name" text field, and input the location in which the file will be saved to "Location" text field, then click "SAVE" button. The file format will be determined automatically from the extension-part of the file name. PNG(.png), JPEG(.jpg), and BMP(.bmp) formats are available.

Edit Menu

Clear

The menu item to cleat the current graph.

Set Range

The menu item to set X/Y/Z ranges of the graph. Please input min and max values to text fields.

Set Label

The menu item to set labels of X/Y/Z axes.

Set Color

The menu item to set colors (used when "Gradation" option is disabled) for each data-series.

Set Font

The menu item to set fonts used for drawing scales, labels, etc.

Please be careful about licenses of fonts if you use graph images for publishing. Sometimes fonts different with specified fonts will be used as alternative fonts when specified fonts are not compatible with this software or it does not contains required characters for drawing the graph. Please check that specified fonts are used correctly in the graph image before publishing, etc.

Set Camera

The menu item to set angles, the distance, and the magnification of the camera. You also can switch ON/OFF of the perspective effect.

Set Scale

The menu item to set designs and formats of scales.

You can select the design of the frame from "Frame" selectbox.

Item of "Frame" selectbox
BOX TYPE
Simple box-like frame (default).
BACK-WALL TYPE
Similar with "BOX TYPE" frame, but only inner-side planes of the box is visible.
FLOOR TYPE
The frame consists of only the floor plane.
NONE
No frames will be rendered in this mode.

The width of the interval between scales (and grid lines) can be specified by the value of "Number of Sectors" text field.

If you want to modify the format of numbers of scales, please disable "Auto" checkbox in "Format" column and inout a formatter text to the text field.

- Examples of formatter texts -
"0.00" for formatting to numbers like as "1.23"
"0.00E0" for formatting to numbers like as "1.23E4"
"0" for formatting to numbers like as "1"

In addition, you can control visibilities of scales by enabling/disabling checkboxes in "Visiblity" column when "Auto" checkbox in that column is disabled.

Set Light

The menu item to control the direction of the light and reflective parameters.

Effects of reflective parameters

Ambient
This parameter controls the uniformed brightness of the graph, independent of directions of the light and the graph.
Directional
This parameter controls the brightness of area on the graph which are directly lit up by the light. The brightness at a spot on the graph depends on both of the direction of the light and the direction of the normal vector of the surface at the point. The more the normal vector at a spot looks toward the light, the more the spot becomes bright.
Diffractional
Similar with "Directional", but by the effect of this parameter, area on the graph which are NOT directly lit up by the light also becomes bright in some extent.
Shininess and Shiny Angle
This parameter controls the brightness and largeness of speculars.

Option Menu

With Lines

The plotting option for connecting coordinate points by lines.

With Points

The plotting option for drawing points at locations of coordinate points.

With Dots

The plotting option for drawing tiny dots at locations of coordinate points.

With Meshes

The plotting option for connecting coordinate points by meshes.

* Data should be described in mesh-representable formats to use this plotting option.

With Membranes

The plotting option for connecting coordinate points by membranes (quadrangle polygons).

* Data should be described in mesh-representable formats to use this plotting option.

With Contour

The plotting option for drawing contour lines.

* Data should be described in mesh-representable formats to use this plotting option.

Gradation

The option to color the graph by the gradation which respects to Z values.

Black Screen

The option to fill background of the graph screen by black. If you disable this option, the background color will be white. The black screen is suited for displaying on PC monitors, and the white screen is suited for printing on papers.

See-Through

The option to make the graph semi-transparent.

* This option makes the rendering processing heavy.

Tessellation

The option to make the graph plotted by using "With Membranes" option smooth by interpolating coordinate points of vertices.

* This option makes the rendering processing heavy, and requires a large amount of memory allocation.

Reverse X,Y,Z

The option to reverse directions of X/Y/Z axes.

Log X,Y,Z

The option for plotting the graph with logarithmic axes.
