I would like to do a ListPlot3D of an empirical function where variables c and d are my x and y axes and tkappa is my z.

I either get an empty plot or axis ranges that do not correspond to values of c, d or tkappa.

If I use the code below; I get an empty plot but the axis ranges are correct.

tkappa[a_,b_,c_,d_]:= 0.67 - 0.07*a - 0.17*b + 0.40*c + 0.32*d + 0.16*a*b + 0.13*a*c-8.093*10^-4*a*d + 0.13*b*c + 0.084*b*d + 0.27*c*d - 0.10*a*b*c + 0.016*a*b*d+0.051*a*c*d + 0.16*b*c*d -0.059*a*b*c*d;
timingData = Table[{c,d,tkappa[0,0,c,d]},{c,0,1,0.1},{d,0,1,0.1}]

If I use a Table function as an argument for ListPlot3D, I get a surface but the axis ranges don't seem to correspond to c, d or values for tkappa.


What is the best approach for ListPlot3D for x,y,z plots?

    $\begingroup$ You want ListPlot3D[Flatten[timingData,1]].. Look the usage of ListPlot3D up. It expects a 1d list of 3d points. $\endgroup$ – halirutan Mar 23 '17 at 17:21

The data feed to ListPlot3D should be of the form {{x1,y1,z1},{x2,y2,z2},....}

 timingData = Partition[
              Flatten[Table[{c, d, tkappa[0, 0, c, d]}, {c, 0, 1, 0.1}, {d, 0, 1,0.1}]],
