There's also rgl.postscript.  It uses the gl2ps library to convert to 
Postscript, PDF, svg, etc.  There are fairly severe limitations to how 
well it works, but give it a try.

Alternatively, just take a very large snapshot, and it may be of 
acceptable quality when reduced.  par3d(windowRect=...) allows you to 
automatically resize your window.
