In Mathematica, does anyone have a way to "spin" a point cloud made visible with ScatterPlot3D??
The current animation tools in Mathematica are just too unweildy.
Many statistical packages (e.g., Systat, S-Plus) let a user spin a 3D point cloud (and the axes) to look at them from different points of view. These software packages let the point cloud spin smoothly or in steps, as the user desires. The user can also "lasso" points to identify them for more detailed study.
many thanks Dave
