There have been two efforts thus far, both proof-of-concept but with
some nice results.  The VTK interface Paul referred to

and some pure python 3D work that uses matplotlib for drawing but is
slow, especially for interactive stuff

The original post announcing this work is here with simple screenshot
here; this code supports simple surface, mesh and 3D scatter plots.

Recently, I learned a graduate student in South Africa in applied
mathematics would by adding 3D support to matplotlib as her Master's
thesis, so if anyone is interesteed I would be happy to put you in
