What is a 3D scatterplot?

A 3D scatterplot is a graph that you can use to explore the potential relationship between three variables. A 3D scatterplot graphs the actual data values of three continuous variables against each other on the x-, y-, and z-axes. Usually, you plot predictor variables on the x-axis and y-axis and the response variable on the z-axis. For example, you may want to examine how temperature and humidity affect the drying time of paint, or how horsepower and tire pressure affect a vehicle's fuel efficiency.
