Since Mathematica Version 7 Arrow and Arrowheads can be used in 3D plots. The Presentations package has had since Mathematica Version 4, and still has, an Arrow3D primitive. David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ From: Alexei Boulbitch [mailto:Alexei.Boulbitch at iee.lu] Dear community, In the 3D graphics one can draw lines. I did not find however, such objects as arrows. Are there operators which would enable one to incorporate an arrow into a 3D graphics object (analogously to Arrow and Arrowheads in 2D)? To be more concrete, I would like to draw programmatically a sphere together with its radius-vector to show its radius on a sketch, or a cylinder together with an arrow with two heads aside of it to indicate its height and this kind of things. More generally, some graphics objects have their "3D versions" (as say, Polygon and Line), but others (such as say, Disk) seem not to have. Is there however, some trick to programmatically combine a 2D graphical object (that has no 3D analog) with a 3D one (say, to draw a disk together with a sphere)?
