mplot3d scatter3d marker sizes?

Is there a way to change the sizes of scatter plot markers for
mplot3d.Axes3D.scatter3d ? I do

from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import Axes3D
ax = Axes3D(gcf())

x,y,z = randn(3,20)
ax.scatter(x,y,z,s=30*rand(20))

and I expect to see 20 points of a range of sizes from 1 to 30... but
instead I see them all the same size. How can I set the size of the
markers?

Hi Erik,

with current svn I see markers of different size. What version of matplotlib
you are using?

Kind regards,
Matthias

Apparently it wasn't recent enough - I updated to the latest svn and
now they are sizing properly - thanks!

Another oddity I've noticed, though - if I do

ax.scatter3D(x,y,z,s=30*rand(20),c=rand(20))

I would expect to see the points colored based on a color map for the
supplied scalar values. Instead, they all appear white. If I do
rand(20,3) , it gives random colors, but that's specifying r,g,b
values instead of scalar mapping. Is there a way to do the color
mapping directly as in the 2D scatter? (If not, it's of course
possible to manually apply the mapping - just less convinient)

Hi Erik,

I can reproduce your finding on my site. Maybe this kind of specifying the
coloring is not yet fully supported. I think Reinier Heeres is the one how
knows almost everything about mplot3D - maybe he can comment on this.

Kind regards,
Matthias
