You might just start by plotting the data 3d instead of trying to make 2D plots Translate / Rotate within a 3D plot. I'm unsure of the visual result your seeking. (a series of translucent 2D plots in z? a joined 3D surface ? ) DiscretePlot3D may help - but may your simpler 2D problem situation more complicated. This is the easy way to turn anything into a 3D raised plane (though maybe not the best looking) ListPlot3D[ Table[i/j, {i, 10}, {j, 10}], Table[GrayLevel[Random[ ]], {i, 9}, {j, 9}] ] here's another way to walk distance data into 3D ContourPlot3D[Cos[Sqrt[x^2 + y^2 + z^2]], {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}, {z, 0, 2}] there are so many new plot styles in mm 9 i almost hate to advise a choice!
