plot3d ticker setting

Hi everybody,
i am a newbie on Matplotlib and wanna know whether there is already tick
setting on x,y,z axes in 3D plot. By now i just know on 2-dimension which
listed on the gallery.
Thanks very much!

Hi Scripper,

I'm not sure what you would like to know, but it is possible to change
the tick settings on the 3D axes in the same way as for normal 2D
axes. For example:

from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import Axes3D
from matplotlib import cm
from matplotlib.ticker import LinearLocator, FixedLocator, FormatStrFormatter
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

fig = plt.figure()
ax = Axes3D(fig)
X = np.arange(-5, 5, 0.25)
Y = np.arange(-5, 5, 0.25)
X, Y = np.meshgrid(X, Y)
R = np.sqrt(X**2 + Y**2)
Z = np.sin(R)
ax.plot_surface(X, Y, Z, rstride=1, cstride=1, cmap=cm.jet)
ax.set_zlim3d(-1.01, 1.01)

ax.w_zaxis.set_major_locator(LinearLocator(10))
ax.w_zaxis.set_major_formatter(FormatStrFormatter('%.03f'))

plt.show()

Hope this helps,

Reinier
