SAP Design Studio - 3rd Axis / Z-Axis in bar chart

Hello dear community,

I need a way to put an additional axis into a bar chart.

For normal a bar chart has a Y axis and a X axis.

But now I want to display the data in a bar chart, which has 3 axes : X, Y and Z.
I've already tried to search in the internet how to do that in SAP Design Studio but I still haven't found any solution yet.

And if somebody knows how to also display that chart in 3D would also be helpful.

Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Vu,

    The standard Design Studio charts only support 2 axes. 3 axes are not supported. If you can clarify your business use case, we might be able to suggest an alternative approach. The first thought that comes to mind is a Bubble Chart as it allows plotting of 3 variables.

    • Hi Vu,

      If you must, you could try embedding a WebI report using the Community SDK Embedded iFrame 2.0 component:

      That being said, I will re-iterate Tammy's point that 3D charts are not an effective means of communicating business data visualisations so I would advise against using such a chart. Also, there seems to be some confusion about the type of chart you are looking for. You are asking about a chart with 3 axes as well as a 3D chart. The only way to render a chart with 3 axes would be in 3D anyway, unless a dual-axis chart is considered a chart with 3 axes (including the category axis).

      Without any further information about your use case, I think this is as far as we can go with recommendations.
