Sorry for the long delay in replying. It seems like your email got held up
on the listserve.

Looking at perps(), it seems like it is just doing ax.plot_wireframe() and
some camera angle settings, which can be set via ax.view_init():

|  view_init(self, elev=None, azim=None)
|      Set the elevation and azimuth of the axes.
|      This can be used to rotate the axes programatically.
|      'elev' stores the elevation angle in the z plane.
|      'azim' stores the azimuth angle in the x,y plane.
|      if elev or azim are None (default), then the initial value
|      is used which was specified in the :class:`Axes3D` constructor.

Does that help?
