3D model of Orion constellation

A funny thing happend: I’ve got into a small project on creating a 3d model of Orion constellation. I’ve been asked to download ready ipyb file, but I cannot add it to his topic :slight_smile:

That’s why I’m sharing results in the body of this massage. First thing first, I’ve made a 2D model

fig = plt.figure()
plt.scatter(x,y, color=‘DarkCyan’)
plt.title(‘2D model of Orion’)

Then was a bit of 3D modeling:

fig_3d = plt.figure()
fig_3d.add_subplot(1,1,1, projection=“3d”)
constellation3d = plt.scatter(x,y,z)
plt.title(‘3D model of Orion constellation’)

Is there a way to make those dots larger? I would highly appreciate if someone could help me on that. I found a way to make them bigger in a 2D model, but it didn’t work in 3D

I have a while looking on stackoverflow… with not success :sweat_smile:

I found this one: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/19451400/matplotlib-scatter-marker-size. Perhaps using Axes3D.scatter would solve the issue, but I do not have a clear idea how to apply it.

I want to color the background in black, I mean the panes of the axes, I removed the color of them but I do not know how to change the color.
