The information contained in this graph is encoded in the angles
between the slices. By giving the illusion of 3D you need to 
distort the angles, thus distorting the very information you 
are trying to display. So it is very good thing that it is not
possible to create such a graph in Stata.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
