That is not possible. pst-3dplot itself does a

   \addbefore at par{linewidth=0.5pt,linecolor=red,arrows=->,dotstyle=|}%

so it overwrites every global setting of linewidth, linecolor, arrows
and dotstyle (for the ticks). You can change these4 parameters only by
a local setting.

However, you can disable the above line in the package with a
preceeding "%", then it does what you want.
