Plots -- transparency of surface?

Can I control the transparency/alpha value of the surface in surface plots? I would like to superimpose the solution of an ode on a surface… fillalpha=0.2 doesn’t have an effect. Another way to do it? (e.g. using wireframe and make that transparent…)?

OK… with pyplot() backend, it works to superimpose :path3d series type on a :surface (i.e., I see the lines with the default surface settings), but markers disappear/are hidden/are difficult to see.

alpha=0.5?

I tried alpha=0.5 for surface plot. No error message, but similar result as before.

Note: the combination of surface plot and line3d plot works ok…


… it is when I use surface plot with scatter plot that the result is somewhat poor.
