[data--> Create Zone--> Mirror] Where are the data coming form and what do you want to do with it? There are several ways to create a sphere depending on the final purpose of the data. 1. Create a circular zone and use data alter to transform the cylindar to a sphere. 2. Download a sphere STL file from grab cad and load it in tecplot. What are you trying to do and I can point you in the right direction. Durrell hotboy likes this.

Create a new layout. 2. Data->Create zone-> Rectangular zone Set the dimensions to 100, 100, 100 Set XMin, XMax to -1, 1 Set YMin, YMax to -1, 1 Set ZMin, ZMax to -1,1 3. Data-> Alter -> Specify Equations use this equation: {Sphere} = x*x + y*y + z*z 4. Create an isosurface of Sphere 5. Data-> Extract -> Isosurface You now have a Sphere in Tecplot. Let me know how it goes
