 You mean without them having to install R and rgl and run the code
that produces your graphic?

 I guess you could somehow export a VRML or some other 3d file:


 but I suspect of all the billions of people on the planet only Duncan
Murdoch knows enough about rgl to figure that one out...

 The person at the other end would still need a VRML viewer. Just get
them to install R.
