3d pie charts

Hi all –

I’m new to Matplotlib, and it looks like a great project, but I’m having trouble figuring out one thing.

I would like to draw a pie chart, but have each wedge appear to have thickness. I see from the examples and the docs that it is possible to draw a wedge in relief so that it appears to cast a shadow, but I don’t see how to make it look something like this. Pardon my bad ascii art. :slight_smile:

             \ \      /
              \ \    /
               \ \  /
                \ \/
                 \|

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Gary

You need to define your own path (or you may combine a wedge and rectangles).

This may be helpful.
