This is my 3D wireframe applet doing a sphere.Click and drag on the globe to rotate it!This is the same applet as the helix is displayed in. but in this case, it is instructed to use a model of a sphere. The Sphere is generated mathematically with any number of latitude or longtitude lines, as specified in the HTML document. Flexible. I discovered lots of good optomization tricks in getting this to run smoothly on all of the major web browsers. Netscape 3 is a chunky old pig, and is definitely the feeblest mainstream java capable browser. IExplorer 4, despite all the fuss, is by far the fastest. 
Other models rendered with this wire frame applet


If you have a pair of 3D glasses , you will enjoy the
stereoscopic version of this program.
