3D ViewPoint Selector...

▪ 3D ViewPoint Selector lets you interactively select a viewpoint for three-dimensional graphics.
▪ The currently selected viewpoint is shown by a schematic cube with the x, y, and z axes labeled. There are three ways of controlling the viewpoint:

▪ The text fields and scroll bars can be set to control either the spherical coordinates r, theta, and phi, or the Cartesian coordinates x, y, and z, by using the corresponding radio buttons.
▪ Once you have chosen a viewpoint, Paste the input string describing it with the Paste button. The viewpoint input is pasted at the insertion point in the current notebook.
