2D Quiver in Axes3D

Howdy all,

Not sure if I'm being a giant noob, but is there any way to plot a
vector field (a la quiver) on the (x, y)-plane of an Axes3D object? The
behaviour I desire is exactly that of
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/mpl_toolkits/mplot3d/tutorial.html#filled-contour-plots

But instead of a contour plot on the (x, y)-plane, I want a quiver plot
there.

Any ideas?
Thank you :slight_smile:

I just tried to see if it was possible with only a few tweaks, and it revealed some limitations in the mplot3d code with respect to handling collection objects subclassed from PolyCollections (and others). Unfortunately, I don鈥檛 see any immediate work-around. Could you please file a feature request? I may or may not be able to address it this weekend.

Mate, you are a machine. I was thinking of tweaking myself, but it seems
like since you hit a brick wall I'll wait to see if you get a branch
going. When you do, I'll fork that bad boy.

Thanks for following up!
