Here is figtex.cmd:
latex %1.tex
dvips -E %1.dvi -o %1.ps
epstool --copy --bbox %1.ps %1.eps
epstopdf %1.eps
It should be easily modifiable to other systems. You'll need
ghostscript and epstool (I recommend ghostview as well); dvips and
epstopdf come with MiKTeX. I have a fuller version at home with some
error checking, but this should do for the nonce.
The LaTeX source file should use \pagestyle{empty} and have a single
object (figure, equation, table, &c.) in the document. For example:
\documentclass{minimal}
\usepackage{pstricks}
\usepackage{pst-3dplot}
\begin{document}
\pagestyle{empty}
\psset{Alpha=30,Beta=15,RotY=-90}
\begin{pspicture}(-4,-4)(4,4)\psgrid
\pstThreeDCoor[drawing=true,
xMin=-4,xMax=4,%
yMin=-4,yMax=4,%
zMin=-4,zMax=4]
\pstThreeDDot(1,1,0)
\end{pspicture}
\end{document}
You might use \documentclass{article} rathe than {minimal} if there's
an issue with loading packages.
Hope this helps,
