3D plots as subplotsΒΆ

Demonstrate including 3D plots as subplots.

from matplotlib import cm
import numpy as np

# set up a figure twice as wide as it is tall
fig = plt.figure(figsize=plt.figaspect(0.5))

#  First subplot
# set up the axes for the first plot
ax = fig.add_subplot(1, 2, 1, projection='3d')

# plot a 3D surface like in the example mplot3d/surface3d_demo
X = np.arange(-5, 5, 0.25)
