3d Plotting

I understand that 3D plotting is not fully working yet, but I have a
question that might be answerable anyway.

I can get a nice looking 3D plot of my data using

surf = ax3d.plot_surface(x, y, z)

but I can't control the colors used in the plot. I can do a

surf.set_array(ColorArray)

and the contents of the array (ColorArray) will be translated into
colors on the plot somehow, but the translation appears to be
arbitrary. Does anyone know how the translation is done, so that I
can assign a certain color to a certain part of the plot?

Thanks,
Rich.

The colors come from the current colormap. You can go all out and
make your own colormap and color based on index using your map. I
don't know how to do that off the top of my head though.
