Re: Irregular Behavior of TranslateShape and RotateShape with ParametricPlot3D


Everything works fine!

In[4]:=
Needs["Graphics`ParametricPlot3D`"]
Needs["Graphics`Shapes`"]
Show[TranslateShape[SphericalPlot3D[2, {theta, 0, Pi}, {phi, 0, 2*Pi}, 
DisplayFunction -> Identity], {1, 2, -2}],
   DisplayFunction -> $DisplayFunction];

Execute the comand with a fresh kernel.
