# How do I plot 3d plots side by side?

I wanted to plot my function and its partial derivatives side by side on a plot. I tried the following thing but it failed,

```
f(x,y)=y/(1+x^2*y^2)
pf=plot3d(f,(x,-1,1),(y,-1,1),color='black',opacity=.4)
fx(x,y)=f.diff(x)
fy(x,y)=f.diff(y)
pfx=plot3d(fx,(x,-1,1),(y,-1,1),color='green',opacity=.4)
pfy=plot3d(fy,(x,-1,1),(y,-1,1),color='red',opacity=.4)
L=[pf,pfx]
G=graphics_array(L,1)
G.show(figsize=4)
```

Thanks.

As far as I'm concerned,

`graphics_array`

is implemented only for 2D plots. Using the reply of @niles at https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7896/multiple-3d-plots-in-one-panel-graphics_array-and-3d/, the following can be regarded as a workaround:Not a full answer, but some ideas.

There is no such thing as a 3D graphics array in Sage. But you might :

Save 2D renderings of your 3D plots in separate image files (e. g.

`png`

), using either the oprtions of the default`jmol`

viewer or the dedicated`tachyon`

viewer. See their respective documentations.Stitch up such images, using, for example, the

`pillow`

or the`matplotlib`

libraries, both included in Sage.A bit of Googling suggests that this second step can be done in many ways.
