Comment:This is a nice start, but the orientation of the planes isn't consistent, so some of the cases might be hard to understand for people just learning the topic.
Comment:Pop-up ads annoying; doesn't show "circle," no "interaction." I would NOT use this tool to demonstrate... I can draw better examples myself, and make them fit what I was doing in class. Even static drawings in a textbook would be as good.
