I tried using 3dtools but it gives me the error I did not find the tikz library '3dtools'. How can I solve this? Usually packages are loaded by Texmaker automatically.

You can dowload 3dtools at here. Download this file, save this file with name tikzlibrary3dtools.code.tex and put the same folder where you put the file that you want to compile.

  • I get the error "Missing \begin{document}" and missing "$" within that file. What is wrong there?

  • I compile the file I am working in. It only contains the code you provided in the question regarding the blochsphere. It is in the same folder as the tikzlibrary3dtools.code
