# volumebounds

Coordinate and color limits for volume data

## Syntax

lims = volumebounds(X,Y,Z,V)
lims = volumebounds(X,Y,Z,U,V,W)
lims = volumebounds(V), lims = volumebounds(U,V,W)

## Description

lims = volumebounds(X,Y,Z,V) returns the x, y, z, and color limits of the current axes for scalar data. lims is returned as a vector:

```[xmin xmax ymin ymax zmin zmax cmin cmax]
```

You can pass this vector to the axis command.

lims = volumebounds(X,Y,Z,U,V,W) returns the x, y, and z limits of the current axes for vector data. lims is returned as a vector:

```[xmin xmax ymin ymax zmin zmax]
```

lims = volumebounds(V), lims = volumebounds(U,V,W) assumes X, Y, and Z are determined by the expression

```[X Y Z] = meshgrid(1:n,1:m,1:p)
```

where [m n p] = size(V).

## Examples

This example uses volumebounds to set the axis and color limits for an isosurface generated by the flow function.

```[x y z v] = flow;
p = patch(isosurface(x,y,z,v,-3));
isonormals(x,y,z,v,p)
daspect([1 1 1])
isocolors(x,y,z,flipdim(v,2),p)
