Hi! The output of my relativity simulations is a 3-D list of a field in a {r, theta, field} data list. I would like to plot this data as a 3-D surface but try as I might with all the options in the Graphics`Graphics3D` library I cannot do it.

It seems one needs the surface in cartesian coordinates for packages like ListSurfacePlot3D or ShadowPlot3D, but if I try the straight forward conversion using x=r*Cos[theta], y=r*Sin[theta] the resulting lists are not acceptable and the commands in question start spewing error messages.

Any help would be appreciated...
