Description: The tikz-3dplot package provides straightforward ways to define three-dimensional 
coordinate frames through which to plot in TikZ. 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 tikz-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.

tikz-3dplot – Co­or­di­nate trans­for­ma­tion styles for 3d plot­ting in TikZ

The pack­age pro­vides straight­for­ward ways to de­fine three-di­men­sional co­or­di­nate frames through which to plot in TikZ. 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 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.
