Add lines to 3D Plot

Posted 11 years ago
How can I add lines that demarcate the different regions of the following 3D plot like [a > 0, c > 0], [a = 0, c > 0] etc.?
Plot3D[1/(1 + E^(-a - c)), {a, -8, 8}, {c, -8, 8}]

Thanks in advance!

Yes it is very easy for rectangular regions:

Plot3D[1/(1 + E^(-a - c)), {a, -8, 8}, {c, -8, 8}, Mesh -> {{0}, {0}},
  MeshStyle -> Directive[Thick, Gray],
MeshShading -> {{Yellow, Blue}, {Green, Red}}, PlotPoints -> 40]




But I am not sure about syntax for the custom regions. Maybe that MSE answer syntax is more suitable for that.

Thanks for the reply!

Sorry for crossposting (I did not anticipate that you would be so quick and effective in replying!)

Is it also possible to color the different regions?
Another answer to the same question is cross-posted on MSE.

 pl1 = Plot3D[1/(1 + E^(-a - c)), {a, -8, 8}, {c, 0, 8},
    Mesh -> {{0}, {0}}, PlotStyle -> None,
    MeshStyle -> Directive[Thick, Red]];
 pl2 = Plot3D[1/(1 + E^(-a - c)), {a, -8, 8}, {c, 0, 8},
    MeshFunctions -> {#1 + #2 &}, Mesh -> {{0}, {0}},
    PlotStyle -> None, MeshStyle -> Directive[Thick, Red]];
 pl3 = Plot3D[1/(1 + E^(-a - c)), {a, -8, 8}, {c, -8, 8},
    Mesh -> {{0}, {0}}, MeshFunctions -> {#2 &}, PlotStyle -> None,
    MeshStyle -> Directive[Thick, Red]];
pl4 = Plot3D[1/(1 + E^(-a - c)), {a, -8, 8}, {c, -8, 8},
   PlotStyle -> Directive[Yellow, Specularity[White, 20]],
   MeshStyle -> Opacity[.5], PlotPoints -> 40];


Show[pl3, pl1, pl2, pl4]

thanks for the references. I have looked at them but I still don't know how to solve the problem.

To give you an idea of what I have in mind I have added the lines in paint to the diagram. What I want to know is how to make something similar in mathematica directly.
