Out of the box, the equivalent to the 2D option *AxisOrigin* does not 
exist in 3D.

*Axes origin for 3D Plots*

You could write your own function. The following notebook might be help 
you started.

*3D Axes*

"Sometimes in calculus, it is useful to see the x, y, and z axes in a 3D 
plot. This notebook illustrates a method for placing a coordinate axis 
set in the middle of a 3D plot as opposed to a bounding box."
