I'm new to Mathematica (5.2), and I find it really wonderful, even 
though not always obvious :) My question is simple.

I need to plot multiple 3d graphic objects, mainly lines with different 
color/thickness attributes, allowing some easy manipulation, just zoom 
and rotations (pan is not necessary).

I've found two packages, one is SuperWidgetPackage, the other is 
MathGL3d. The problem is that none of them seem to work correctly. 
SuperWidgetPackage can show 3d graphics, but it seems to me attributes 
do not work. The other one, MathGL3d does not even start when <<'ing 
the package showing a syntax error (I know, on

Can you suggest a simple package for doing these ``interactive'' plots 
(or redirect me to a more appropriate newsgroup if necessary)? I don't 
really need anything sophisticated... :)

Thanks to anyone!
