This question already has an answer here:

I am plotting 3D points and it occurs to me that Mathematica doesn't have an easy way to specify my points to be plotted in a uniformly scaled cartesian space.

For example I plotted

Show[ListPointPlot3D[{{0, 0, 0}, {1, 2, 3}}], AspectRatio -> Automatic,  PlotRange -> Automatic]

And I get this:

0,0,0 and 1,2,3

I would like to be looking at a box with the dimensions 1,2,3, not something like 3,3,1. The AspectRatio and PlotRange do not help, by the way.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You need to use the option BoxRatios -> Automatic.

ListPointPlot3D[{{0, 0, 0}, {1, 2, 3}}, BoxRatios -> Automatic]

Thank you. This works. How do I know? ListPointPlot3D[{{0, -1, 0}, {1, 2, 3}}, BoxRatios -> Automatic] Thanks again. – Steven Lu Jun 26 '14 at 22:19
