Shading a Surface Using Mesh
Mathematica
supplies a useful way to apply shading to 3D plots when a mesh lies over the figure (here, an ellipsoid).
Contributed by:
David von Seggern

THINGS TO TRY
Rotate and Zoom in 3D
Slider Zoom
Gamepad Controls
Automatic Animation
SNAPSHOTS
DETAILS
The resolution of the mesh is defined using the built-in
Mathematica
Mesh
option. The option
MeshShading
then lets you define the pattern of the mesh shading. This can be made fairly complex, but in this Demonstration, only 2×2 matrices were used.
