proc g3d with annotate option

Hello all -

So I am using this SAS code as an example of what I want to do. Pretty much it makes a surface plot with a plane at z=.20. However the surface and plane are trasparent and you cant really tell where the plane cuts the surface. Is there a way to make the plane and surface solid so that way the plane looks like it is cutting the surface?

data nums;

   keep x y z;

   do i=1 to 30;

      x=10*ranuni(33)-5;

      y=10*ranuni(35)-5;

      z=sin(sqrt(x*x+y*y));

      output;

   end;

run;

proc g3grid data=nums out=default;

   grid y*x=z / axis1=-5 to 5 by .5

                axis2=-5 to 5 by .5;

run;

data anno;

   /*Produce the plane*/

   function='move'; xsys='1';ysys='1';zsys='2';line=1;size=1;

   x=0; y=100; z=.20;output;

   function='draw';

   x=100; y=100; z=.20;output;

   function='draw';

   x=100; y=0; z=.20;output;

   function='draw';

   x=0; y=0; z=.20;output;

   function='draw';

   x=0; y=100; z=.20;output;

      /*Produce the grid lines*/

   function='move'; xsys='1';ysys='1';zsys='2';line=2;size=1;

   x=0; y=25; z=.20;output;

   function='draw';

   x=100; y=25; z=.20;output;

   function='move';

   x=0; y=75; z=.20;output;

   function='draw';

   x=100; y=75; z=.20;output;

   function='move';

   x=25; y=100; z=.20;output;

   function='draw';

   x=25; y=0; z=.20;output;

   function='move';

   x=75; y=100; z=.20;output;

   function='draw';

   x=75; y=0; z=.20;output;

run;

proc g3d data=default;

   plot y*x=z / anno=anno rotate=45 tilt=75; 

run;

quit;

Thanks!

Re: proc g3d with annotate option

You can use the SurfacePlotParm statement in GTL.  Program is attached.
