This script produces a jMol file for me. (I am on cloud.sagemath)

> color='blue', mesh=1, frame=False) 9
> img.save('myfile.png') 10
> img.export_jmol('thisjmol') 11 img 12
The file produced is about 20K or so but if I try to open it via JMol standalone viewer I just get black.
Mind you if I try the example jmols I also get black.
My end point is to get the 3D view into a 3D package such as Blender but to start with I need to get my 3D image out of sage.
Any idea of where I am going wrong?

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26075/transferring-3d-plots/?answer=26082#post-id-26082There used to be a way to save the 3D scene with the `spt.zip` extension but is seems currently broken:
sage: img.save('/path/to/file.spt.zip')
AttributeError: 'OutputSceneJmol' object has no attribute 'jmol'
What you can do, if you do not have many plots, is to view them with jmol and then export them.
**EDIT**
- From the Sage command-line, it is on the top of the window, you can export in `.spt` format from the jmol applet : `FILE > Export > Write State`
- From the Sage notebook, click on the circular arrow (bottom left of the image) to let jmol start, then right click on the image, you will get a menu: with `File > Save` you can export as a `JVXL` isosurface, from `File > Export`, you can export as `VRML` and `X3D` 3D models.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26075/transferring-3d-plots/?comment=26134#post-id-26134I can't see the sage command line that you speak of. I am using cloud.sagemath though. I have managed to get jmol import of three.js objects to work. I think that in the screen rendering, three.js is involved.Tue, 10 Mar 2015 07:09:16 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/26075/transferring-3d-plots/?comment=26134#post-id-26134
