I am familiar with this question.

I am on Arch linux, and am looking for a software the following features :

  • Ability to plot iso and parametric surfaces.
  • live preview
  • Ability to export in pov-ray compatible files - or any raytracer for the matter
  • Hopefully T-Splines

My attempts had been :

Povray itself - very difficult to use, due to no live preview, and trial and error correction for light, camera etc.

Gnuplot to povray - it is confusing for me.

Mathics / Julia - to my knowledge doesn't support povray.

Mayavi - no rendering

So please help with your recommendations.
