Yesterday I received an email asking me how did I generate the 3D plots displayed in this preprint so I decided to share the process in this post. For this example I used the data from:

Püschel T. A., Marcé-Nogué J., Gladman J. T., Bobe R., & Sellers W. I. (2018). Inferring locomotor behaviours in Miocene New World monkeys using finite element analysis, geometric morphometrics and machine-learning classification techniques applied to talar morphology. Journal of The Royal Society Interface, 15(146), 20180520.
