How it should look like.
[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 188.8.131.52. German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 24b32b4-b87ec2e-85c8e98-87a4e20-9a1b8c1] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit), same with LibO 3.3.3 and OOo 3.1.1, so inherited from OOo.
Looks more or less ok with Gnumeric, fine with MS EXCEL Viewer.
Another problem with a document created with SoftMaker software (?)
I doubt that many users are affected, so not MAB

In order to address such chart types, we need a 3 surface renderer (I mean, something like z=F(x,y)).
One could (internally) delegate the plot to gnuplot.
I'm using LO 3.6.2 under Linux, same effect as noted by the reporter.

I am changing this to an enhancement request - we just don't have this particular type of charting ability, adding it is an additional feature and therefore an enhancement
There is a basic workaround available for surface charts:
Of course, it is not a replacement for real Surface charts, but it might be sufficient for a few use cases.
"Type" added to summary so that all enhancement requests relating to chart types are readily findable.
