Plotted an elipse using polarlpot with two vectors AspectX and RangeX as input using the code below and receiving the following plot: nFig = 1;
color = 'b';
h = figure(nFig);
polarplot( AspectX,RangeX,color);hold on;
% using symmetrie
polarplot(-AspectX,RangeX,'c');
%% changing axis title
% aspect-angle RH-> [0-180°], LH-> [-180-0°]
ax = gca;
tt = ax.ThetaTick;
for i=1:length(tt)
if tt(i) > 180
ttL{i} = num2str(tt(i)-360);
else
ttL{i} = num2str(tt(i));
end
end
set (ax,'ThetaTickLabel',ttL);
My goal is now to create a Z-Dimension and creating several of those ellipses above each other, by giving every ellipse a Z-Value.
I already used this 3dPolarplot script but was not succesfull:

Any help is much appreciated!

While experimentating with polarplot3d if figured out that this function is not suitable for me and was able to solve my problem using fill3. Sulaymon Eshkabilov on 17 Jun 2021
Do you have any mathematical formulation depicting the relatioship between the ellipses and Z axis? If you do then that can be used to compute the 3D data for Z. For that first create a meshgrid of data for theta and R and then compute the values of Z using meshgrid data. Finally, using the fcn file polarplot3d( ) ==> polarplot3d(Z), 3D polar plot will be build.

Thank you Sulaymon for answering,
Every ellipse should have one constant Z-value, therefore there is no mathematical relationship in terms of
Z = f(thetra,radius). All I have is one vector with theta-angles, one vector with the corresponding radiuses and one constant Z-value.
The problem is, that I dont understand how to use those values as correct input for the polarplot3d-function...
