Python – 3D Charts

Python is also capable of creating 3d charts. It involves adding a subplot to an existing two-dimensional plot and assigning the projection parameter as 3d.

Drawing a 3D Plot

3dPlot is drawn by mpl_toolkits.mplot3d to add a subplot to an existing 2d plot.

from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

chart = plt.figure()
chart3d = chart.add_subplot(111, projection='3d')

# Create some test data.
X, Y, Z = axes3d.get_test_data(0.08)

# Plot a wireframe.
chart3d.plot_wireframe(X, Y, Z, color='r',rstride=15, cstride=10)

Its output is as follows −
