Please read ?scatterplot3d carefully and completely. The function is *retunred* in form of a closure from a call to scatterplot3d() and there is an example how to use it in the examples section of the help file:


   ## example 5
   s3d <- scatterplot3d(trees, type="h", highlight.3d=TRUE,

       angle=55, scale.y=0.7, pch=16, main="scatterplot3d - 5")    # Now adding some points to the "scatterplot3d"    s3d$points3d(seq(10,20,2), seq(85,60,-5), seq(60,10,-10),

       col="blue", type="h", pch=16)
   # Now adding a regression plane to the "scatterplot3d"    attach(trees)
   my.lm <- lm(Volume ~ Girth + Height)
   s3d$plane3d(my.lm, = "solid")
