How to plot a 2d streamline in 3d view in matplotlib

(keeping the discussion on the mailing list)

The object you get back have two attributes: “lines” and “arrows”. This is just psuedo-code, but it would look something like this:


stream = ax.streamplot(......)

art3d.linecollection_2d_to_3d(stream.lines, ....)

for p in stream.arrows:

art3d.patch_2d_to_3d(p, ...)

Again, I have no clue if this actually would work. I haven’t tried doing this myself.

I have plotted the streamplot in 2d . I am not able to extract lines or arrow from streamplot. I am new user of matplotlib, can you please tell me the syntax to extract lines and arrows from streamplot().

Thanks for you help.

Well, there is the new 3D quiver feature: http://matplotlib.org/examples/mplot3d/quiver3d_demo.html. Not quite streamlines, but it might do in a pinch.

Another approach:
There is the 2d streamplot() function that returns a specialized object. From the docstring:

    Returns:

        *stream_container* : StreamplotSet
            Container object with attributes

                - lines: `matplotlib.collections.LineCollection` of streamlines

                - arrows: collection of `matplotlib.patches.FancyArrowPatch`
                  objects representing arrows half-way along stream
                  lines.

You might be able to get away with using the “lines” object and feeding it through art3d.line_collection_2d_to_3d(), kind of like how it is done for pathpatch objects here: http://matplotlib.org/examples/mplot3d/pathpatch3d_demo.html. You might also be able to pass the individual objects in the “arrows” list through art3d.patch_2d_to_3d(), but I have no clue if that would actually work or not.

I hope that helps!

I need to extract streamlines and arrows from a 2d plot and then transform it to 3d data. How to transform this 2d streamline data to 3d data and plot using mplot3d?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry, it is “line_collection_2d_to_3d()”.
