I try to plot in 3D using "rxplot -M 3d". Here are the steps I do:

rosrun turtlesim turtlesim_node
rosrun turtlesim turtle_teleop_key
rxplot -M 3d /turtle1/pose/x /turtle1/pose/y

rxplot gives the following error:

rxplot: error: You may only specific 2 or 3 topics with '3d' or 'scatter'. When 2 topics are provided, time is used as the third axis.

These commands lead to the same error:

rxplot -M 3d /turtle1/pose/x:y
rxplot -M 3d /turtle1/pose/x,/turtle1/pose/y

Using three topics doesn't work either.

Using rxplot with option "-M 2d" works fine.

Can anyone give me a working example of how to plot in 3D?

For the record: This bug has been fixed long time ago and my turtlesim example from the question works now.
