First off, I'd like to congratulate the devs who wrote the 3D plotting
module. Its great and fits a lot of my plotting needs without
resorting to vtk, mayavi etc.
But I've had some issues with 3D plots
1. If i do a
import pylab as p
import matplotlib.axes3d as p3
ax = p3.Axes3D(fig)
then things work well.
But if I do an "from pylab import *",
the plot command does'nt work. Any ideas?
2. In the scatterplot, as well as other 3D plots, I would like to plot
different datasets with different colors. While in plot(), "r." etc
change color, in plot3d etc the option does'nt work.
So, is there a way to use different colors in the same plot.
3. Is there any documentation on the 3D plotting functions. There are
examples at http://scipy.org/Cookbook/Matplotlib/mplot3D, but I
could'nt find any documentation on function calls, options etc.
help(plot3d) just says plot3d(**args) without any other info.
