Hi, I want to draw a 3d ellipsoid between two 3d coordinates x1,y1,z1 and x2,y2,z2. The ellipsoid need to be rotated so its top and buttom touch the coordinates. It should have height of r derived from square root and thickness of r/10.Any help far I manage to draw the ellipsoid using ellipsoid() and draw it using surf in the center of axis. I dont know how to calculate and add the required angles to rotate it and the offset.Thanks.

Use rotate to rotate the ellipsoid

Use cart2sph
p1 = [1 2 1]; % first point
p2 = [2 5 1]; % second point
[az,el,r] = cart2sph(p2-p1); % find two angles and distance

Another way would be to use the ellipsoidalFit.groundTruth method in this File Exchange submission.
P1=[x1,y1,z1]; P2=[x2,y2,z2];
ABC=[r, r/10 , r/10];
plot( ellipsoidalFit.groundtruth([],center,ABC,[az,-el,0]*180/pi) );
