The misc3d package provides a small collection of mostly rgl-based
functions for 3D data:

   contour3d     Uses rgl to render isosurfaces, or three-dimensional
                 contours, computed by the marching cubes algorithm.

   image3d       Crude 3d analog of image() using rgl to plot points on a
 		three dimensional grid representing values in a three
 		dimensional array. Assumes high values are inside and
 		uses alpha blending to make outside points more

   lines3d       Draws connected line segments in an rgl window.

   parametric3d  Plots a two-parameter surface in three dimensions in
                 rgl.  Based on Mathematica's Param3D

   slices3d      Uses tkrplot to create an interactive slice view of three or
                 four dimensional volume data, such as MRI data.
