Hi everyone,

New to plotly.js, trying to work out if it is any use for my purposes. What I need is to be able to visualise a mathematical function (a statistical distribution) and change parameters seeing their effects in realtime. I can do something similar to this with jsxgraph (example https://jsfiddle.net/themusicroob/nk2gtv97/2/), but what I’d like is to be able to do this in 3D. Specifically I’d like a graph of the function z=((1-e^(-ax))^w)*(be^(-by))^(1-w) with sliders for the parameters a, b, and w, which, when manipulated, cause the graph to update in realtime. I’ve seen plotly.js can handle realtime data, and draw 3d graphs. But I’ve not seen any examples of it being used to plot mathematical functions and, presumably for the same reason, I’ve not seen the actual data in the graph being manipulated through the UI.

Is this possible with plotly.js or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Thanks in advance for any help.
