That and the "nowire" option of -surface-should get you close to what you want, as long as the z ranges do not overlap.(On my system. Stata 11, OS X 10.5.8, PB G4, the -surface- and -saving-options don't work, so I can't test this.) Steve On Jan 6, 2011, at 10:10 AM, Nick Cox wrote: The reference here is to -surface- from SSC. Please remember to explain where user-written programs you refer come from; this is a very longstanding request on this list. -graph combine- is just doing precisely what it claims, juxtaposing graphs. All you can do with -graph combine- is put graphs side by side. There is absolutely no scope for it to do what you want. Nor is it surprising that there is no option controlling z-axes; Stata has no concept of a z-axis and any appearance to the contrary is just a programmer-produced illusion. What you want I think requires non-trivial Stata programming or recourse to other software. Good official support for 3-D graphics has been on many users' wishlists for some time, including mine. but as of now I don't see a way to do what you want in Stata. (Whether the graph could be drawn to work well is a separate issue.)

I tried -gr combine-, but the output is simply put the two graphs side by side. What I want to get is in one graph, the two groups 3-D graph of both the groups are drawn (they share one x-axis, one y-axis, and one z-axis). I alsotried -gr combine, xcommon ycommon-. The results are the same. Andgrcombine does not allow the option of -zcommon- .Is there someone who could give me some suggestions on this? Thankyou!
