While there is a way to choose the y-range in 2D plots (which is sensible and important), there does not seem to be such a possibility for 3D plots. There, the z-range is always set automatically, which can lead to undesirable effects, especially if one includes a point in the plotting range where the function grows towards infinity. As a simple example, try generating a reasonable picture of the function 1/(x^2+y^2).

At least gnuplot supports setting a z-range in 3D plots and imho this should be supported when calling gnuplot via maxima.
