3d graph javascript auto pan (by config?) on load

Hi there.
I have a 3d graph that I render like below.
So the view on the graph is from a diagonale angle (looking into the corner of x,y,z). But because of this, the upper part of the graph is out of the viewport… And so I always need to pan the graph into position, a bit down. Is there a way to set this by config or by some javascript call ?

Kind regards

    }
}

Is there anybody who knows how to adjust the default position/pan of the 3d graph ?

Plot your graph, move/zoom/pan whatever you want and then take the configuration of the current view from layout.scene.camera from your figure. Use that same view when you plot next time.
