You probably need to use the SurfaceGraphics options AxesEdge,  Boxed,
and ViewPoint to get the effect that you're looking for.   Here is an
example that you cann use as a template:

Plot3D[Sin[x y],{x,0,\[Pi]},{y,0,\[Pi]},
  AxesEdge -> {{-1,-1},{-1,-1},{-1,-1}}, Boxed -> False, 
  ViewPoint -> {2.971, 1.419, 2}];

Much of this is documented in Section 2.9.13 of _The Mathematica Book_
(Third Ed.).
