Here's an alternative using Asymptote. It fulfills some version of most of your requests; for instance, the colors are defined in the preamble (but in Asymptote code rather than TeX code, so you might need to define TeX versions separately). % To run: pdflatex --shell-escape filename.tex \documentclass[margin=10pt,convert]{standalone} \usepackage{...

I don't know what kind of a surface rendition you have in mind but you can do it in pgfplots, say, via surfaces. \documentclass[border=2mm]{standalone} \usepackage{pgfplots} \begin{document} \begin{tikzpicture} \begin{axis}[domain=0:1, y domain=0:1,samples=20,no marks] \addplot3+[surf,colormap/blackwhite](x,y,{(x < y^2?1:0)}); \end{axis} \end{tikzpicture}...

The required plot of this function can also be done with pgfplots in a short way with nice output. I previously posted it on TikZ.de. It requires the recently released pgfplots 1.11, because I used a new feature to globally switch from degree to radian, because here radian is used. \documentclass[border=10pt]{standalone} \usepackage{pgfplots} \pgfplotsset{...

This is possible Thomas \begin{pspicture}(-5,-3)(2,3) \pstThreeDCoor[IIIDticks,xMin=-1,yMin=-1,zMin=-1,zMax=2] \pstPlanePut[plane=xz,planecorr=normal](4,0,0){\rput[l]{30}(0,0){\Large\green\textbf{Vertical Text}}} \pstPlanePut[plane=xz,planecorr=normal](4,0,0){\rput[l]{60}(0,0){\Large\blue\textbf{Vertical Text}}} \pstPlanePut[plane=xz,planecorr=...

This might be overkill, but you can think to different applications. \documentclass[pstricks,border=1cm,12pt]{standalone} \usepackage{pst-3dplot} \usepackage{xparse} \ExplSyntaxOn \NewDocumentCommand{\coords}{m} { \prop_set_from_keyval:Nn \l_tmpa_prop { #1 } } \NewDocumentCommand{\mapcoords}{m} { \prop_map_inline:Nn \l_tmpa_prop { #1##2 } } \...

You could start by specifying the coordinates in 3D (obtained from Sacred Geometry): \documentclass{standalone} \usepackage{tikz} \begin{document} \def \phi {1.617} \begin{tikzpicture}[ x={(-0.86in, -0.5in)}, y = {(0.86in, -0.5in)}, z = {(0, 1in)}, rotate = 22, scale = 0.6, every node/.style = { circle, fill = blue!20, inner sep = 0pt,...

\documentclass[12pt]{article} %\usepackage{auto-pst-pdf} \usepackage{pst-3dplot} \usepackage{rotating} \begin{document} \rotatebox{90}{$AAA$} \end{document} produces no error with latex-dvips-ps2pdf sequence.
