Orion 2d orion 3d

Hi @2008hernandezi,

Please also have a close look at the z-axis of your points. I believe they all sit at z=0.0 which is not correct. Using the standard matplotlib.pyplot.sctatter() function only allows for 2D plotting.

You need to be using the .scatter() method of your 3D axis object which supports z data…

ax3dobj = fig.add_subplot(1,1,1,projection="3d")

I’d also encourage you to add a little more detail to the axis labels as it’s a good habit to get into since your graphs are often viewed by others who need as much information with as little effort as possible.
