I’m trying to use Plotly’s Python API to create a slider chart that controls a 3d surface plot. In this link, the example chart controls a line plot. Is there a way that I can replace the line plot with a surface plot similar to one of these here?
Yes, this should be possible. You’ll need to replace the definition of
data in the example above with the definition of the surface traces that you want.
... data = [dict( type='surface' visible = False, z = ... for step in np.arange(0,5,0.1)] ...
I think the rest of the example should apply as-is.
Hope that helps!
