I want to compare same plot with mathematica and python but they use different order of axes. I tried to change them in Plot3D such that they look like the following plot in python: enter image description here but lot of tricks did not work. Namely I tried AxesEdge, AxesOrigin, ViewPoint, $\ldots$ etc.

Is there any simple way to do this avoiding dynamic and rotation ?

I'm using the following code

domain = {0, 1};
Plot3D[Exp[x y], {x, 0, 1}, {y, ##}, ColorFunction -> "Rainbow",
PlotLegends -> Automatic, AxesLabel -> {"x", "y"}] & @@ domain

It gives the following: enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Does Graphics3D[{}, Axes -> True, AxesLabel -> {"x", "y", "z"}, FaceGrids -> {{1, 0, 0}, {0, 1, 0}, {0, 0, -1}}, PlotRange -> ConstantArray[{0, 1}, 3], ViewPoint -> {-2.4, -2.4, 2.}] look like what you need? $\endgroup$ Sep 21, 2020 at 11:54
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for your reply, I'm using Plot3D and z-axis is in the right side linked to x-axis as in the image. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Copy the AxesLabel -> {"x", "y", "z"}, FaceGrids -> {{1, 0, 0}, {0, 1, 0}, {0, 0, -1}}, and ViewPoint -> {-2.4, -2.4, 2.} into your Plot3D[] and see if it helps. $\endgroup$ Sep 21, 2020 at 12:09
  • $\begingroup$ It gives x and y with same origin and z on the left hand side. I got the same result with AxesEdge. In my case, x and z are with same origin and y start at the end of x-axis. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Can you please include the Plot3D[] expression you are having trouble with, then? It's hard to say anything more helpful without seeing something concrete. $\endgroup$ Sep 21, 2020 at 12:22

Is this what you need?:

domain = {0, 1};
Plot3D[Exp[x y], {y, ##}, {x, 0, 1}, ColorFunction -> "Rainbow", AxesLabel -> Automatic,
   ScalingFunctions -> {"Reverse", "Reverse"}, AxesEdge -> {Automatic, {1, -1}, {1, 1}},
   PlotTheme -> "Detailed"] & @@ domain

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, just x and y are reversed. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Migalobe That's easy to modify, see my update. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I think it's like we plot $f(y,x)$ instead of $f(x,y)$. They are not the same if the function is not symmetric, right ? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Migalobe No, I'm just changing the order of axis. Remember that 2nd argument of Plot3D is the range for 1st axis (usually denoted as $x$ axis in traditional math. ) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Migalobe Of course, 110 is so large compared to the maximum of Exp[x y] in the plotted domain. $\endgroup$
