but I still can't get a live plot. I have constructed my polyhedron `V` from the `Polyhedron` class as an intersection of linear inequalities. The command `V.plot()` works by using the JMol engine, except that when I attempt to make it "live" all the edges and faces disappear and I have collection of vertices only.
I can also plot with tachyon; that works fine but doesn't allow rotating.
When I plot with threejs: `V.plot(viewer='threejs',online=True)` all it plots is the wireframe box surrounding the polyhedron; that is, the xyz "box" in which the polyhedron fits, but not the polyhedron itself.
So - how can I create a 3D polyhedron with a "live" plot that allows rotating? Sun, 09 Dec 2018 22:49:34 -0600https://ask.sagemath.org/question/44620/viewer-3d-issues/
