How do I add 2 Y axis to my MATLAB Plot?

Asked by Bharath Lohray on 1 May 2013

I know this question has been asked before - but none of them deal with a 3D plot with 2 Y axis. My question is a continuation of - or

I have now successfully managed to add a 2D plot along with a surface plot. See image below -

Now my problem is that the range of the 2D plot is so high that the 3D plot is shrunk to look like nothing more than a plane on the ceiling. It is supposed to have variations like the figure in the question I have lined above.

How do I provide a different Y axis for the 2D plot so that the 3D plot is not shrunk like it is here.

As I understand plotyy(), it is meant for 2D plots only and not for 3D plots.
