mplot3d: large numbers scatter plot


I was hoping to use mplot3d to visually examine the density of points in a
3D plot. However, the number of points i am displaying is of the order
10,000-100,000. I use scatter or scatter3D to plot x,y,z for the points. The
pan and zoom functions become unworkable.

Does anyone have any bright ideas as to how i could get round this problem?
In 2D, i would use histogram2D and either contour or pcolor to show
densities. Could something similar be done in 3D too?
