I have had some success with Gnuplot.py and Mayavi, but both are
probably more work than matplotlib's 3D surface stuff (because they
have a lot more capability).

If you want to pursue matplotlib, I would ask this question over there
(I think somebody asked something very similar last week - so look for
that thread).
