# Plotting speed data in 3D (Cube)

I've got data for the speed with which air flows through different locations in a box. I began by a simple code to graph speed as follows.
clc
clear all
Df = table2array(D);
for i=1:1:length(Df)
t=Df(i,1);
for j=2:5;
speed=Df(i,j);
plot(t,speed,'.')
drawnow
hold on
end
end
This plots all the air speeds at time t, followed by all the air speeds at time t+1 and so on. Ive got several hundreds of data points so instantaneous comparison with this graph is not reasonable.
How can I represent this data in a cube with different locations displaying their respective speeds with passing time?

My bad. I shouldve been more clear about what I meant with the cube.
Say I have an the xyz origin axis at the center of a cube such that it divides the cube into 8 different sections as below.
Say I want j = 2:5 in the front facing quadrant, one in the center of (-,-,+), one in the center of (+,-,+), one in the center of (-,-,-) and finally one in the center of (+,-,-). My previous code was graphing all these speeds at the same time. However, I want to change that to displaying the actual numbers in the desired location. As in when t=2, j is 0.46 m/s and that is displayed as a number, in the center of (-,-,+) and so forth.
