3d plotting without ticklabels

Hi,

I'm trying to remove the xtickmarks and ytickmarks from a 3d plot,
without any success.

The example I experiment with is the following:

from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

fig = plt.figure()
ax = axes3d.Axes3D(fig)
X, Y, Z = axes3d.get_test_data(0.05)
cset = ax.contour(X, Y, Z, 16, extend3d=True)
ax.clabel(cset, fontsize=9, inline=1)

#One try that didn't work
ax.set_xticklabels("")

plt.show()

It looks like the final plot ignores all my efforts in turning the
ticks off. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

···

Ola,

Just to make sure, have you tried “ax.set_xticks([])”?

Ola,

Just to make sure, have you tried "ax.set_xticks([])"?

Yes, I have tried that, but without success. Looks like the tick-logic
is overridden for 3d plotting. Or at least, I cannot figure out how it
works.

Bump.

Is this possible using mplot3d?? I would, also like to turn off the ticks
and the tick labels.

I have done some further research on this, and it appears to be a bug of some sort. Possibly the Locators are already made by the time the ax.set_xticks([]) is called and that function falls on deaf ears because the real xaxis is actually a different object for Axes3D. When trying to dig down and force zero ticks from being used (using NullLocator), I get errors when attempting to draw:

I think this is a bug in Axis3D. In the meantime, one can use

# make ticklabels and ticklines invisible
for a in ax.w_xaxis.get_ticklines()+ax.w_xaxis.get_ticklabels():
    a.set_visible(False)

Note that w_xaxis, w_yaxis, w_zaxis correspond to x, y, z axis.
To remove y tickmakes, replace ax.w_xaxis with ax.w_yaxis.
