The rendering of scatter points is particularly superior in Graphing Calculator 3D as compared to other similar programs thanks to the extensive use of GPU processing to speed up rendering time. This allows real-time rotation of large scatter points in real-time.
The scatter points can be imported from any spreadsheet programs that can produce comma-separated-values (CSV) format files such as Microsoft Excel. The program also supports super-high-precision data such as those with 100,000 digits precision.
In addition to cartesian coordinates you can also import and plot scatter coordinates of polar, cylindrical and spherical coordinates.
When importing scatter points, you have the option of importing them from a static file or a "live" file. If you import from a live file, the program will continuously monitor the file for changes and will update the plot as soon as the data changes.
