Our current implementation of MDS is based on the smacof method which is too generic. A PCA / SVD might be much faster in many cases. This is planned as a pull request. In the mean time you can directly use sklearn.decomposition.RandomizedPCA instead of the MDS class....

Here is a ggplot2 option. I usually shy away from 3D plots as they are hard to interpret properly. I also almost never put in 5 continuous variables in the same plot as I have here... ggplot(df, aes(x=var1, y=var2, fill=var3, color=var4, size=var5^2)) + geom_point(shape=21) + scale_color_gradient(low="red", high="green") + scale_size_continuous(range=c(1,12)) While...
