3D wireframe plots in one directionΒΆ

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

Column (x) stride set to 0, Row (y) stride set to 0

fig, (ax1, ax2) = plt.subplots(

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

# Give the first plot only wireframes of the type y = c
