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.
