3D wireframe plots in one direction

Demonstrates that setting rstride or cstride to 0 causes wires to not be
generated in the corresponding direction.

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

fig, [ax1, ax2] = plt.subplots(2, 1, figsize=(8, 12), subplot_kw={'projection': '3d'})

# Get the test data
X, Y, Z = axes3d.get_test_data(0.05)

# Give the first plot only wireframes of the type y = c
ax1.plot_wireframe(X, Y, Z, rstride=10, cstride=0)
ax1.set_title("Column (x) stride set to 0")

# Give the second plot only wireframes of the type x = c
ax2.plot_wireframe(X, Y, Z, rstride=0, cstride=10)
ax2.set_title("Row (y) stride set to 0")
