I can plot this equation - cos(x) + cos(y) + cos(z) = 0
with cartician coordinate using this code.
syms x y z
f = @(x,y,z) cos(x) + cos(y) + cos(z);
a = 0:0.1:2*pi;
b = 0:0.1:2*pi;
c = 0:0.1:2*pi;
[X,Y,Z] = meshgrid(a,b,c);
data = f(X,Y,Z);
p = patch(isosurface(a,b,c,data,0));
isonormals(X,Y,Z,data,p)
cdata = smooth3(rand(size(data)),'box',7);
isocolors(X,Y,Z,cdata,p)
p.FaceColor = 'interp';
p.EdgeColor = 'none';
view(150,30)
daspect([1 1 1])
axis tight
camlight
lighting gouraud
But now I would like to plot in r, theta, z coordinate like a coin shape fill with this surface how can I do that ?
