I have this beautiful sphere I made in matplotlib. How would I go about putting it in a tkinter frame widget? It'd be nice to be able to integrate it into an existing tkinter GUI. Also is it possible to rid of the menu bar below the display? I have no need to save the output or zoom, so it's useless to me.
from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d,Axes3D import matplotlib.pyplot as plt from matplotlib import cm import numpy as np fig = plt.figure() ax = Axes3D(fig) #<-- Note the difference from your original code.. u = np.linspace(0, 2 * np.pi, 100) v = np.linspace(0, np.pi, 100) x = 10 * np.outer(np.cos(u), np.sin(v)) y = 10 * np.outer(np.sin(u), np.sin(v)) z = 10 * np.outer(np.ones(np.size(u)), np.cos(v)) ax.plot_surface(x, y, z, rstride=4, cstride=4, color='lightgreen',linewidth=0) #,antialiased=False #cmap=cm.jet plt.show()
Have a look at the examples for embedding plots in a tk GUI, it should be enough to get you started in the right direction.
As for removing the toolbar, it's a case of not adding it when you are embedding plots in a GUI.
If you are using matplotlib.pyplot the toolbar will be created automatically for every figure. If you are writing your own user interface code, you can add the toolbar as a widget.
