Orthographic projection for 3D plots?

Hi guys,

is there any way to change the projection of a 3D plot to an orthographic view? It is standard feature in webgl and should not be a problem.
Orthographic is what mechanical engineers understand best.

Manual adjusting of the perspective projection would also be a nice feature. Still perspecitve is always random in a way or another.

Best regards
Stoyan

Thanks for writing in!

We don’t have any short-term plans for adding other projections in 3D plots in plotly.js unfortunately.

That said, if you’re interested, I believe you can already do this in gl-plot3d - the low-level module plotly.js uses to render 3D graphs.
