RE: ImplicitPlot3d


Daniel,

Needs["Graphics`ContourPlot3D`"]
Needs["Graphics`Shapes`"]

Show[Graphics3D[Sphere[]]];

ContourPlot3D[x^2 + y^2 + z^2 - 1, {x, -3/2, 3/2},
   {y, -3/2, 3/2}, {z, -3/2, 3/2}];

I would be interested in knowing why you can't use ParametricPlot3D because
for plotting surfaces in 3D it is usually by far the best approach.

ParametricPlot3D[{Cos[p]Cos[t], Cos[p]Sin[t], Sin[p]}, {p, -Pi/2, Pi/2}, {t,
    0, 2Pi}, PlotPoints -> {21, 31}]
