I am trying to change a value in a matrix with each iteration of a loop. I want Tdank to take on a different value with each iteration. For instance, for iteration 1, I want xfoot, yfoot, zfoot, etc. to be the first number in their individual matrices on the first loop and to be the 2nd number in their individual matrices on the second loop, continued until the end. Tdank is basically a compilation of all 1st values, 2nd values, etc. THE MATRICES I'M TRYING TO CHANGE ARE THE LAST 3 (very bottom of page/code).

Hello,
From my understanding, you want to collate all the corresponding values of the three matrices (xfoot, yfoot, zfoot) into a single matrix 'Tdank' such that 'Tdank' changes during every iteration of the loop.
You can use nested for loops in you use case. Here is an example
% assuming the three matrices of size 3X3
xfoot = [1 2 3; 4 5 6; 7 8 10];
yfoot = [11 12 13; 14 15 16; 17 18 19];
zfoot = [21 22 23; 24 25 26; 27 28 29];
% a nested for loop to iterate through every value in the matrices
% here r, c refer to the number of rows and columns of matrices
for r = 1:3
for c = 1:3
Tdank=[xfoot(r,c),yfoot(r,c),zfoot(r,c)]
end
end
The value of Tdank changes during every iteration. Since this is nested for loop there will be 9 iterations in total (since 9 values in each matrix).
In the first iteration, the value of Tdank will be (it picks up all the first values from all the three matrices)
Tdank =
1 11 21
In the second iteration, the value of Tdank will be (it picks up all the second values from all the three matrices)
Tdank =
2 12 22
and so on.
