Or > perhaps in an upcoming version? for 3d Graphics you can use the RealTime3D` package that allow rotation and zoom. If you wish more control on 3d objects you can try MathGL3d http://phong.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/~kuska/mathgl3dv3/index.htm that allow realtime modification of the 3d object, i.e., flip between smooth an flat shaded polygons, wire frame graphics, polygon outlines, hollow polygons. Of course you can rotate and animate the object and edit viewpoint and light sources ... > > Also, All the demo graphics are dithered. I have 24bit mode on, and should > see no dithering.

For what ? The graphics is PostScript and anitaliasing is only needed for low resolution images but not for an 600-2400 dpi printout. > It'd make plots look much more like a > continuous plot. What may the PlotPoints option do ?? Regards Jens
