I am trying to export a plot object generated by implicitplot3d, for use and manipulation without Maple. I am using Maple 11.02 (10/11/07) on Windows XP.
I therefore seem to have three choices:
1. POV. My exported object does not render in pov-ray v3.6.
2. DXF. My exported object does not read in TrueView, and reads as black in SolidWorks eDrawings and another freeware viewer.
3. VRML. My vrml(implicitplot3d(x^2+y^2+z^2-1,x=-2..2,y=-2..2,z=-2..2),`filename.wrl`); call generates an effectively empty file. Similar calls with plot3d do work.
Any help troubleshooting any of the methods above would be most appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
