Consider the graph Plot3D[Sin[x] - y^2, {x, -2*Pi, 2*Pi}, {y, -2, 2}] (*plot to be displayed*) One way to get a rotatable 3D graph is to execute the following command which puts you in the real time mode: << "RealTime3D`" >From now on, any 3D graphics generated will come out in rotatable mode. Plot3D[Sin[x] - y^2, {x, -2*Pi, 2*Pi}, {y, -2, 2}] (*plot to be displayed*) The only relevant information I found was Information["RealTime*", LongForm -> True] "RealTimeGraphicsDisplayFunction is display function which allows Graphics3D and SurfaceGraphics objects to be rotated interactively in the front end." (...) Executing then << "Default3D`" you switch back to PostScript output. Plot3D[Sin[x] - y^2, {x, -2*Pi, 2*Pi}, {y, -2, 2}] (*plot to be displayed*) Can someone explain how exactly happens this changing from PostScript output to rotatable object and back? What is loaded with << "Default3D`"? Regrads Dimitris
