Stream function is calculated for a 2D flowfield, and isn't available in 3D. You can plot pathlines in 3D, but these won't be fixed to a plane (look into the oil-flow option in the pathlines... I know this fixes streamlines to a wall, but you may be able to fix them to any plane). You can plot Vectors on a plane and you can turn off the out-of-plane component (Display->Vectors then Click the Vector Options button to see more options).

Hope this helps, and good luck, Jason
