## [Matplotlib-users] simple 3d surface plots?

 [Matplotlib-users] simple 3d surface plots? From: Travis E. Oliphant - 2006-01-31 16:07:22 ```At SciPy 2005, I thought I saw John show some examples of simple 3d surface plots in matplotlib. Is this code available? Once you can draw points and lines on the screen, it's just a coordinate transform to make simple 3d plots (o.k. there are some hidden-line calculations too ;-) ). The gist (in old scipy.xplt) package does simple 3d using just the 2d primitives. -Travis ```

I'm attaching it here, it was sent a while ago to the list, but things have been dormant on this front since. The demo3d only has one demo, if you edit mplot3d, there's 3 more tests in it which you can see. Cheers, f ```
