you should try MathGL3d form

or the commercial version 4.0.
If you have some problem with the old version from the link
above I will help you.

| Hi!
| I'm new to Mathematica (5.2), and I find it 
really wonderful, even
| though not always obvious :) My question is 
| I need to plot multiple 3d graphic objects, 
mainly lines with different
| color/thickness attributes, allowing some easy 
manipulation, just zoom
| and rotations (pan is not necessary).
| I've found two packages, one is 
SuperWidgetPackage, the other is
| MathGL3d. The problem is that none of them seem 
to work correctly.
| SuperWidgetPackage can show 3d graphics, but it 
seems to me attributes
| do not work. The other one, MathGL3d does not 
even start when <<'ing
| the package showing a syntax error (I know, on
| there's writtne ``works with Mathematica 3.x and 
4.0'', but I gave it a
| try...).
| Can you suggest a simple package for doing these 
``interactive'' plots
| (or redirect me to a more appropriate newsgroup 
if necessary)? I don't
| really need anything sophisticated... :)
| Thanks to anyone!
