In this section, we will investigate how you can interact with 3D charts. In Chapter 2, Highcharts Configurations, we have already explored the drill down feature and we will revisit it briefly in 3D charts. Another interaction specific to 3D charts is the impressive click-and-drag feature.

Drilldown 3D charts

Let's convert our previous drill down example into a 3D chart. First, we add the options3d option (and other positioning options):

              options3d: {
                  enabled: true,
                  alpha: 25,

                  viewDistance: 100
              },

Here, we have our top level 3D chart:
