    Hi. I will send the idea to the team to add a 3D scatterplot in Immerse. But in the meantime my advice would be to use https://plot.ly/javascript/#3d-charts using mapd-connector directly. That would only work if your project can afford to gain total control by building a custom app. Here’s an example that could give you some insights about how to use 3D data from mapd-core in a custom app https://www.mapd.com/blog/3d-lidar-with-mapd-and-ubers-deck-gl/

    Thanks for your answer. If I go with the plotly + connector way, can I still utilize the server render feature?

    You can use all the SQL query power of OmniSci core (MapD just changed name in the middle of our discussion ), but the server rendering doesn’t currently provide any backend rendering for 3d charts. The LIDAR demo I shared is a good place to start. Basically you upload you data coordinates and query them, say as x, y, z, and plot them directly on your 3d chart.
