 [Matplotlib-users] 3d plots: set view angle (azimuth and elevation) From: Kevin Dunn - 2009-09-20 01:25:56 Attachments: Message as HTML ```Thanks for a great library and excellent documentation. I'm using mpl_toolkits.mplot3d.Axes3D (version 0.99.0) to generate a 3D scatter plot and the web examples have been very useful so far. But I have these questions to which I can't find answers in the mailing lists or the website: a) can you programmatically set the viewing angle (azimuth and elevation)? I noticed the ax.get_proj() function, but was hoping there would be an ax.set_proj(elev=..., az=....) function also. b) can you set all 6 sides of the bounding box to show up, instead of 3, but set their faces to be transparent (of course!) Thanks, Kevin ```
