Shape Chart

The Shape Series is a powerful rendering series that displays a wide range of customizable shapes in a 3D chart. With this feature, you can define the centers and dimensions of the shapes to create complex and visually engaging visualizations. The Shape Series is commonly used in fields such as architecture, engineering, and manufacturing, where it can be used to visualize complex structures and designs.

Sample Table Format

Data PointShape TypeDimensionsCenter
1 Sphere 10,10,10 5,5,5
2 Cylinder 10,10,10 5,5,5
3 Cube 10,10,10 15,15,15

In this table, each data point represents a shape with a specific type, dimensions, and center. The Shape Series uses this data to render the shapes in the 3D chart.
