3D plotting support

Hi Everyone,

I vaguely remember a comment from a poster a short while back that suggested that 3D support in matplotlib was not serious. I would like to ask what plans there are for 3D plotting support in this great library.

thanks!

There are no plans. The topic keeps coming up, but no one has come forward to put steady work into it. It is not entirely clear how much can be done using the present approach, which is a layer on top of a fundamentally 2D framework.

You might take a look at tvtk.mlab and mavayi.
