The first step is to change your second line to say
This gives you a handle to update the figure properties. To flip the z axis,
f.CurrentAxes.ZDir = 'Reverse'
To change the other two axes, first look at the current viewpoint, called the "camera position":
-9.1314 -11.9003 -7.1603
If you change the z position of the view point, you get something that I think matches what you are looking for:
>> f.CurrentAxes.CameraPosition = [-9 -12 +7]
