There are some fine points regarding the nature of the points you want to
plot in 3D. First, have a close look at the definition of ListPlot3D (in the
on-line help browser, e.g.). Notice that the argument you must provide is an
array of height values, not a list of points in 3D. So, for example

tbl = Table[Sin[x*y], {x, 0, Pi, Pi/8},
    {y, 0, Pi, Pi/8}];


works all right (first of all load Graphis`Graphics3D`). Some
experimentation is useful in order to familiarize yourself with this
