# Connecting two points on a 3D scatter plot in Python and Matplotlib

To connect two points on a 3D scatter plot, we can take the following steps

- Set the figure size and adjust the padding between and around the subplots.
- Create a new figure or activate an existing figure using figure() method.
- Add an axes to the current figure as a subplot arrangement.
- Create lists for x, y and z.
- Plot x, y and z data points using
**scatter()**method - To connect the points, use plot() method with x, y and z data points with black color line.
- To display the figure, use
**show()**method.

## Example

from matplotlib import pyplot as plt plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.50, 3.50] plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True fig = plt.figure() ax = fig.add_subplot(projection="3d") x, y, z = [1, 1.5], [1, 2.4], [3.4, 1.4] ax.scatter(x, y, z, c='red', s=100) ax.plot(x, y, z, color='black') plt.show()
