Hello all. Is there a way to render graphics text in a 3D plot so that it is hidden by surfaces in front of it? For example, this plot shows an "x" in a plot of Sin[xy]. Now, when I rotate it, the x shows through the plot when the surface is covering it. g1 = Plot3D[Sin[x*y], {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}] text = Graphics3D[Text[StyleForm["-x", FontSize -> 18, FontWeight -> "Heavy"], {-0.5, -0.5, -0.5}]]; Show[{g1, text}] Thanks, Chuck
