Hi there! I am having trouble with Rotate. Here is the problem: I have a Graphics3D object called circ1 (obviously a circle in 3D space). r=1;q=p/4; circ1=ParametricPlot3D[{r*Sin[q]*Cos[f],r*Sin[q]*Sin[f],r*Cos[q]},{f,0,2 p}] Now I want to rotate it by some angle about the vector eje={1,0,0} or whatever vector. y=p/4;eje={1,0,0};p={0,0,0}; Graphics3D[Rotate[circ1,y,eje]] What I get is the message "Rotate is not a Graphics3D primitive or Directive" (??) Any help will be appreciated. BTW, where dis the command ShadowPlot go? Thanks Sergio Terrazas
