Hey all. I have a question about graph resolutions, specifically the 3D that I am trying to deal with. I have a rather complex curvature graph that takes place in a very small variable range leading to a very blocky and segmented graph.
My input variables are from 1-7 and 1-4, and MathCAD with only accept those spans in a one stepped integer incrementation. So because I can only figure out how to make it accept 6 increments of input, it linearly connects each of those data points instead of running a calculation at 1, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc. and forming a smoother graph. Can you tell mathcad to increase its resolutions of calculated points in the graph? We ended up scaling our input variables by 10 and dividing the instances of those variables by 10 in the equation to get it to calculate 60 points in lieu of only 6, but that messed up the plot's scale. Plus, that hardly seems like the right way of doing things. I hope there is something I am missing.

???

The resolution is whatever you selected for your 3 vectors, Mathcad doesn't care.

Hey. Thanks for the reply. I'm not plotting a data set, or else that would be the case. I'm trying to plot an equation of two variables and MathCAD won't accept any vectors of incrementation other than one.

No, you're doing it wrong.  You should download "Creating Amazing Images with Mathcad 14" to get an idea of what can be done.
