I'm schocked -- you x-axes comes out of the paper ?
How does your printer handle salient axes ..
Will the screen not destroyed by  such axes ??

Or do you mean that your ViewPoint should positioned 
that your view diretion is parallel to the x axes ?

ViewPoint -> {3.384, 0.000, -0.040}

The persepctive is a property of the projection 
and Mathematica use a central projection.
