To plot 3D graphs in Mac OS X you could use the default Grapher
utility that is pre-installed in Mac. But a better option is to download
Runiter's Mac 3D
Grapher and plot your 3D formulas there. The advantage of this is
that Mac 3D Grapher is generally easier to use and the resulting 3D graphs
are of higher quality.

## Easy to Use

When you start the program the cursor is already active on the first
empty equation line and ready for your inputs. Simply type down a
mathematical equations and the 3D graph is immediately plotted for you.
Switch from Cartesian to Polar, Cylindrical, Spherical or parametric
graph types and repeat the same step to generate new graphs. To plot
scatter 3D points you can type down the x,y,z coordinates in the
table of values. Alternatively you can import the data from a excel or
csv file.

## Graphing Calculator for Mac

The program is well integrated in Mac OS X. It allows saving and
opening files in Mac. The user interface matches the default look and
feel of Mac windows. The installation process is simple, just download
the Mac version which is stored in a zip file that is automatically
extracted; then run grapher.jnlp which in the addition to starting the
software also creates icon shortcuts on your desktop. After this, Mac
Graphing Calculator will always update itself automatically whenever a new version
is available.

## Superior Graph Quality in 3D

This software plots nicer and more accurate graphs than most other
Mac grapher tool available today. Below are just some examples of this:
