When I plot the point on a scatter3 graph with color it displays properly, but the plot does not connect the data between the points to form a surface. What do I need to do to my X,Y,Z data to put it in the correct form for a surface plot?
You can plot either volumetric or surface data. To plot a surface you need to specify a triangular mesh of vertices and edges using patch. To plot a volume you first need to compute the volume, then render it using something like vol3d on the file exchange.
