Need more control of labeling of cube axes, particularly regarging multiplier presentation (and viewing space)
This issue was created automatically from an original Mantis Issue. Further discussion may take place here.
I am creating a 3D scatterplot presentation, with the position of the plot points determined via a formula based on the data values. For example, I create a scatter plot point for each element in a mesh, with the X position of the plot point controlled by the global element id, and the Y position of the plot point controlled by an element variable such as von_mises or magnitude of displacement. In order to get a plot with a reasonable aspect ratio, I find and use constants to multiply both X and Y values by so that the general XY range of the plot comes out square-ish rather than ultra wide and short or thin and ultra tall.
However, when I call for a rendering of a cube axis with labels enabled, the system automatically indicates a multiplier for each axis based on the minimum and maximum range of the data (the transformed data) which does not take into account the multiplier I have already applied.
I either need to have complete control of the text of the axis label so I can indicate my own multiplier, or I need to have a way to specify what multiplier should be shown. Additionally, it would be good to have more control over how tic marks are set up, as the transform I apply to create my scatterplot values may not be a linear transform.
