Is the savefig function what you're looking for ?


Note that as far as I know, the .mtl file associated with a given .obj file is not handled properly - all your colors will be white. Personally, I export in .vrml which suits my needs better, as it does handle colors in a satisfactory way.

With the way matplotlib is designed and structured, it may be a while before that would be possible.  It wouldn't be impossible, mind you, but I just haven't thought about that.  Could you file a wishlist item on Github?  Maybe I could steal some code from Mayavi for this idea...

In the meantime, Mayavi would be your best bet, though.
