3D Graph Explorer 

(Download links below) 

This program features generating surfaces and curves, based on formulae entered in it, and letting the user to browse those surfaces interactively in a 3-Dimensional environment.


  • Plots 3D surfaces/curves entered as parametric/non-parametric functions by the user.
  • Perspective drawing, i.e. objects look bigger when they are nearer.
  • Has optional fog effect.
  • Supports partially transparent colors.
  • Supports a comprehensive list of mathematical functions.
  • Supports creating unlimited number of objects each with its own settings.
  • Automatically creates and displays axes according to your settings.
  • Explore the scene that you have created in real time using mouse or keyboard.
  • Automatically calculates curve length or surface area for each function.
  • Operating System independent since this is a Java application. (Even runs as an applet, but with limited functionality.)
  • Export the image to PNG formatted bitmap. (Not supported in Applet.)
