# Projecting Reference Lines in a SmoothHistogram3d Surface

What is the best way to draw a path (red color, dashed) along the surface of the smoothHistogram3D. Assume the paths desired to be the X=0 and Y=0 Axes.

You could use a Mesh.

plot = SmoothHistogram3D[data];
path = SmoothHistogram3D[data,
MeshFunctions -> {#1 &, #2 &},
Mesh -> {{0}, {0}}, MeshStyle -> Directive[Thick, Red],
PlotStyle -> None, BoundaryStyle -> None];
Show[{plot, path}]

Like that?

SmoothHistogram3D[data, MeshFunctions -> {#1 &, #2 &}, Mesh -> 1,
MeshStyle -> Directive[Red, Dashed]]
