## questions about changing coordinate position in 3D plotting

 Dear Users, I have a question regarding the positioning of the coordinate. As you can see in this picture, the z-coordinate is on the right edge of the figure. While my need is to put it on the left edge (another face also). I wonder how this can be achieved? yours, Jinbo_______________________________________________ Matplotlib-users mailing list [hidden email] https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/matplotlib-users

## Re: questions about changing coordinate position in 3D plotting

 the mplot3d code uses a heuristic to determine which edges of the "cube" to use for axis and tick labelling. If you rotate the scene a bit, you'll find that the axis labels will move. Unfortunately, this logic is hard-coded and not very flexible at the moment. The code resides in axis3d.py, if I remember correctly.Ben RootOn Sat, Jun 15, 2019 at 4:10 AM 谢瑾博 <[hidden email]> wrote:Dear Users, I have a question regarding the positioning of the coordinate.

 I guess view_init is the best way, although I may need to reverse the array and the labels a bit. Thanks!
