Block Category: Signal Consumer

Description: The polarPlot block takes theta and r pairs and displays pairs of inputs in either a locus or vector format maintaining an orthogonal aspect ratio. You can customize the plot and control how data is displayed.

You can change the size and shape of the PolarPlot block for better viewing by clicking on the Maximize button in the upper right-hand corner of the PolarPlot or dragging its borders or corners.

Memory Usage: The polarPlot block uses eight bytes per data point of RAM. If you are running a long simulation at a small step size, it is possible to exceed your RAM limit. For example, a simulation with a step size of 0.005 and duration of 32236 would require 6.4 million points of data per plot trace. At eight bytes per point, each plot trace uses 51MB of RAM. If you used all eight traces on a polarPlot block, you would exceed 412MB of RAM.
