Nice!

You can also create a pdf file with a 3D object that you can
interactively rotate with your mouse.

Here's how. First, create the Mathematica object:

superSphere = ContourPlot3D[x^4 + y^4 + z^4 == 1,
 {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, {z, -1, 1}, Mesh->False];
Export["C:\\junk\\supersphere.x3d", superSphere]

Second, import the x3d file into the free software MeshLab, then
export it as a u3d file.

Third, use the media 9 LaTeX package to import the u3d file into pdf:

\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{media9}

\includemedia[
 width=0.9\linewidth, height=0.9\linewidth,
 activate=pageopen,
 3Dmenu,
 3Daac=60.0, 3Droll=0.0, 3Dc2c=10.0 -3.0 10.0,
 3Droo=3.0, 3Dcoo=0.0 0.0 0.0,
 3Dlights=CAD, % display object without artificial colors
 %3Dlights=Primary, % colorize monochrome objects with R, G, B lights
 3Drender=SolidWireframe
]{}
{supersphere.u3d}

Note: if the object looks inside out, you will have to go back into
MeshLab and reverse the object's normals, then re-export it.
