comment TiKz externalization ignoring scale
can you convert your comment into an answer? I suppose you can copy the example code from my answer in the linked question

comment TiKz externalization ignoring scale
Your follow-up question tex.stackexchange.com/questions/263539/… appears to contain the answer of @mvienney , and it appears to work (with two compilations as claimed by @mvienney).

comment Pgfmath misbehaving when reading negative values from table in Pgfplots
@oarfish is right, the convention to merely expand in text-form is not intuitive. I as author of pgfplots will address this issue eventually. Thanks for the report.

comment How to draw a function like sin(x)~cos(x) in tikz/pgfplots?
[...] And if they are not aware of it, it will add confusion rather than clarification, especially since compat is an established best-practise and people are used to it. And since assume version=newest sounds as if that would be a good idea, I would even more say that I would rather discourage people from it and not at the alias (newest is often a bad idea, see tex.stackexchange.com/questions/139690/…). With this reasoning, I would rather not follow the suggestion. If in doubt, let us discuss it by email.

comment How to draw a function like sin(x)~cos(x) in tikz/pgfplots?
In principle: yes... but I am not sure if I want to substitute its occurrences in all examples. But that, in turn, would be necessary in order to make people aware of its existence. [...]

comment How to draw a function like sin(x)~cos(x) in tikz/pgfplots?
+1 . Since this is an answer to a beginner question, I would like to advertise that \pgfplotsset{trig format plots=rad} in the preamble would reconfigure all plots to use radians. In this case, one could also write domain=0:2*pi to get the same outcome.

comment Surface of revolution in pgfplots
I am glad the answer helped. I would suggest you make a new question out of the "last step" such that the questions are not mixed and make a good reference for the future. It would also allow you to mark this question as "answered" such that others know how to solve the problem at hand.

comment lua(la)tex vs pdf(la)tex speed in texlive 2015
Agreed. However, even if plots turn out to be "special", it still makes sense to choose luatex for such applications.

comment pgfplots 3D bar chart - wrong plotting order
I experimented with your example and I came to the conclusion that this is either a wrong matrix encoding (i.e. mesh/rows wrong or mesh/ordering wrong) or some bug in pgfplots (my expectation was that z buffer=sort, maybe even with the expensive patch refines=2 would solve any ordering issues). Could you also post the matlab code to reproduce the (small) figure?

Well, opacity=0.5 means "50% translucent". Skip it and it is solid.

comment Draw sphere and add scattered data with color information
Can you list the package versions on your system? I have no problems with opacity. If a package upgrade would solve the problem, that would be fine.
