Definitely not with matplotlib currently. Personally, I don't like
these plots. One way to represent this data is with three calls to
scatter, each with a different color, and use marker size for the
z-axis.

Thanks for all the replies -- I'm not such a huge fan, either, but a collaborator of mine is....

Hi,

Was wondering if anyone knows if there was any way to
reproduce this kind of example:

http://www.mps.mpg.de/dislin/exa_bars3d.html

i.e. a 3d barplot.

One alternative that exists is Qwt3d:

http://qwtplot3d.sourceforge.net/

which apparently can do 3d barplots.

Personally I'm not that familiar with that toolkit, but it does have
python bindings, in conjunction with PyQt:
