[SciPy-user] How to draw a 3D graphic of a function?
Mon Apr 14 12:27:52 CDT 2008
I can't import matplotlib.axes3d using a 0.98pre SVN build. Here's my output:
In : from matplotlib import axes3d
ImportError Traceback (most recent call last)
/Users/Josh/<ipython console> in <module>()
14 from axes import Axes
15 import cbook
---> 16 from transforms import unit_bbox
18 import numpy as npy
ImportError: cannot import name unit_bbox
