Functions     Data     Curve fits
  • Start MotionGenesis™.  At its command prompt, type    Plot
    To plot data from a file, click the  Data File  button and browse to that data file.
    To plot a function, click the  Function  button and enter the function.
  • Or drag and drop a data file onto  MotionGenesisStartHere
  • Or from the operating system prompt, type one of the following:
    MotionGenesis   Plot
    MotionGenesis   dataFilename.1   dataFilename.2
    MotionGenesis   dataFilename.1[1, 2, 3]   (to plot columns 2 and 3 vs. column 1)
  • Macintosh plotting problem?   Alternative: MATLAB® (to the right) or Excel Plotting Tutorial
MATLAB® Alternative: To solve an ODE and generate a plot,
start MotionGenesis™ and type the following:
Variable y' = cos(t)
Input y = 0 meters, tFinal = 9 sec
OutputPlot t seconds, y meters
ODE() SolveODEAndPlotDemo.m
Next, start MATLAB® and run SolveODEAndPlotDemo.m
i.e., at the MATLAB® prompt, type SolveODEAndPlotDemo
Note: Ensure   SolveODEAndPlotDemo.m   is in the current working directory/folder.

Click the  Function  button and enter a function.   Click the  View graph  button.
