Superposing multiple 3d plots

Hello,
To superpose 2d plots, I just use the command `hold on` before plotting. However, when I try using this with 3d plots `plot3()`, I get a 2d projection of the superposed plots, instead of getting a 3d plot. What is going on?
Example syntax:
figure
plot3(x,y,z,'k.-')
gives me a 3d plot as expected. However, adding a point at the origin:
figure; hold on
plot3(rx,ry,rz,'k.-')
plot3(0,0,0,'ro')
gives a flat 2d image. Am I typing something wrong? Thank you.

You should be able to get the 3D view back by just specifying it explicitly after the plotting is done.

Yes it worked. But I don't understand what happened. What does `view(3)` do?
