3D Plotting / Advanced data visualisation

It would be handy to be able to construct 3-D plots like http://matplotlib.org/examples/mplot3d/wire3d_zero_stride.html

So, for example I can view daily activity for a particular stock as a single line, and stack 30 of these lines next one another -- the resulting surface might pick up day to day patterns/cycles.

However, from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d fails with: InputRejected:
Importing axes3d from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d raised an ImportError. No modules or attributes with a similar name were found.

It might be worthwhile for Quantopian to look at leveraging https://gitgud.io/unconed/mathbox -- that would allow for state-of-the-art dynamic data visualisation.

Hi Pi, thanks for making the suggestion. Feedback like this helps us prioritize which modules to work on adding support for. I've added a +1 to mpl_toolkits.mplot3d.
