_plot_radiation_pattern_sphere(ax3d, ned_mt, type, p_sphere_direction='inwards')[source]

Private function that plots a radiation pattern sphere into an Axes3D.

  • ax3d (mpl_toolkits.mplot3d.axes3d.Axes3D) matplotlib Axes3D object
  • ned_mt moment tensor in NED convention
  • p_sphere_direction If this is ‘inwards’, the tension regions of the beachball deform the radiation sphere inwards. If ‘outwards’ it deforms outwards.
