I would like to add tick labels to a 3d plot, but so far have had no luck. I would like to start with something like the bars3d example: http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/mplot3d/bars3d_demo.html But I would like to have each bar chart labeled by its tick on the yaxis. The traditional ax.yaxis.set_ticklabels() method has no effect, and the ax.yaxis.set_ticks() just messes up the output catastrophically. My attempt at modifying the example is below. Any thoughts? Thanks, Jeff  from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import Axes3D import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np fig = plt.figure() ax = Axes3D(fig) for c, z in zip(['r', 'g', 'b', 'y'], [30, 20, 10, 0]): xs = np.arange(20) ys = np.random.rand(20) ax.bar(xs, ys, zs=z, zdir='y', color=c, alpha=0.8) ## My changes ax.yaxis.set_ticks([0, 10, 20, 30]) # This totally screws things up ax.yaxis.set_ticklabels(['first', 'second', 'third', 'fourth']) # This does absolutely nothing ## End my changes ax.set_xlabel('X') ax.set_ylabel('Y') ax.set_zlabel('Z') plt.show()   Jeff Klukas, Research Assistant, Physics  University of Wisconsin  Madison  jeff.klukas@...  jeffyklukas@...  jeffklukas@...  http://www.hep.wisc.edu/~jklukas/
