And also the simple use of SpinShow from the Animation package should not be
overlooked. It has the advantage that it retains all of the graphics
directives. If you use the up/down arrow keys you can turn the object around
at will and stop to look at a particular view. But you only obtain rotation
about one axis. However, this is often sufficient.

Marvellous it is, so much thanks to you all ! ..earlier in some
newsgroup I remember to have read that what another system has by way of
graphics 3D manipulation Mathematica does not, but here I see it
covers almost everything that is needed or can be desired.. thanks
again.   Narasimham
