Even though SVG is a 2D vector format, plot2svg can be used to create stunning 3D effects. The SVG filter effects can be used to create shadows that enhance the 3D effect. Following example creates a sphere with semi-transparent surface […]

Unfortunately, SVG does not support bilinear color fills. Therefore, the convertion of Matlab patches is not straight forward. In addition, figures with patches generally contain a large number of elements. This puts some restriction on the usage of overlays to emulate a bilinear shading. The usage of color filters is inadequate due to speed limitations.
