The user can spec­ify the ori­en­ta­tion of the main co­or­di­nate frame, and use stan­dard TikZ com­mands and co­or­di­nates to ren­der their tikz­fig­ure. A sec­ondary co­or­di­nate frame is pro­vided to al­low ro­ta­tions and trans­la­tions with re­spect to the main co­or­di­nate frame. In ad­di­tion, The 3dplot pack­age can also han­dle plot­ting user-spec­i­fied func­tions in spher­i­cal po­lar co­or­di­nates, where both the ra­dius and fill color can be ex­pressed as para­met­ric func­tions of po­lar an­gles.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/graph­ics/pgf/con­trib/tikz-3dplot/ .
