I use rgl for 3D plots.

Mostly I use this for a 3D scatter plot where I can zoom and pan for closer analyses
of the data. I also can manually connect any points with lines. It took me a bit to
get the options right so the plot appears the way I want it to. In my opinion, there
are a few unresolved issues with the units and labels on the axis, but most of the
data I looked at was in principle components so x, y, and z were in the same units.

I can post a sample of the terminal input that I used if that would help.
