(For example, the object could be the domain of a certain function, and the data could have to do with values of the function in `RR^2`). The problem is that the 3d object takes a few seconds to render, and every time the point moves, the object has to be re-rendered. This makes the interact unusable.
So can I somehow tell Sage to just add one point to the object which it's already rendered? Note that I am pre-computing the 3d object and storing it in a variable, `g`. Then my interact function just takes coordinates as input and does
(g + point3d(x,y,z)).show()
But this is still too slow :(

UPDATE: The method described in the question about [fast show for cached plots](http://ask.sagemath.org/question/517/fast-show-for-cached-plots-for-interact) will probably solve this problem too!nilesFri, 25 Feb 2011 09:44:16 -0600https://ask.sagemath.org/question/7969/
