You can identify the most attractive and least attractive areas of a 3D chart in a similar manner to a 2D chart. In this chart, the most attractive area is the upper left front space (higher value scores, lower costs, and higher success probabilities) versus the least attractive lower right rear space (lower value scores, higher costs, and lower success probabilities ).

You can rotate the chart using the blue arrow buttons at the bottom of the form to see different perspectives of the 3D area. “Drop-lines” leading from the bubble centers to the grid planes help you see where the bubbles are in the 3D space. These can be toggled on and off in the Preferences form.

You can rotate a 3D bubble chart by using the blue arrow buttons at the bottom of the form. The chart will rotate vertically and horizontally around the axis as illustrated below. Clicking the green oval button restores the chart to its original rotation.

Drop-lines help you locate the bubble center in the grids, and can be toggled on and off in the 3D Bubble Chart Preferences form:

You can also toggle the display of a wire frame "front" to enclose the bubbles in a box in the 3D Bubble Chart Preferences form:

You can also modify the grid colors, transparency, and turn a gradient effect on and off independently for each background 3D Bubble Chart Preferences form:
