Re: Mouse controlled 3D rotations

Use experimental package <<RealTime3D`.
Then, when plotting 3D object with Show you can rotate 3d with mouse.

The formatting of the plot is completely destroyed though.

I do not figure out why. I asked also to the list but I did not receive any 
reply.

Bye,

Marco
