Getting camera view data for 3d plots

Hi folks,

I know there is a way to set the camera angle of a 3D scatter plot. I was just wondering if it possible to get the information of the camera angle (after plotting) when the graph has been rotated manually (eg. by the mouse)

Thanks :wink:

Edit: Sorry, I could have checked just a bit longer since I found kind of an answer:


Hi @Alexboiboi,

Yeah, if you display the figure using a FigureWidget (https://plot.ly/python/figurewidget/) in the Jupyter Notebook then you can access properties to lookup the current values of properties that are chosen by ploty.js as defaults, and properties that are modified interactively.


Hi! FigureWidget is not supported in frames. What could be a walkaround?
