How do I hide or resize poseplot local axes?

10 views (last 30 days)
I'm trying to plot a view of my stl mesh file in poseplot. However, the actual object seems to be dwarfed by the set of axes that the poseplot function has added to the mesh file. Is there a way to resize the axes (or remove them altogether) so that the object is properly visible?

Hi Floris-Jan Nieuwenhuis,
If the ScaleFactor Name-Value argument does not resolve the scaling issue, I recommend trying the plotTransforms command instead, as it provides more explicit controls for the length of the axes.

To remove the frame axes in the plot, you can search for them in the axes handle returned by plotTransforms and then delete them.
ax = plotTransforms([0 0 0], quaternion(1,0,0,0), "MeshFilePath", "groundvehicle.stl");
% Remove frame axes objects.
frameAxes = findobj(ax, "Type", "Line");
Please note that you will have to perform a more robust check on the output of findobj if your figure contains other Line objects that should not be deleted.

I've tried a few configurations with the plotTransforms command, but utlimately not being able to scale the model has a huge disadvantage in my application. I'll stick to the poseplot command.
