Yes, after some search I've found this (undocumented?) package, but as you say, it throws away things, and that's not a good point. It's experimental though, so no complains :) > Also you shouldn't overlook SpinShow, which works and is a quick way to > rotate an object.

[...] SpinShow does not a good job for me --- as you say. It's a quick-and-dirty graph job, nothing particular (lines mainly and points, with some colors sometimes). I've found the JavaView package which works. It's not a great solution but waiting for RealTime3D to be ready...
