Display Sphere with Different Types of Shading
Starting in R2019b, you can display a tiling of plots using the
nexttile functions. Call the
tiledlayout function to create a 2-by-2 tiled chart layout. Call the
nexttile function to create the axes. Then display three different spheres using different types of shading.

the appropriate values, depending on whether the surface or patch
objects represent meshes or solid surfaces.
