Two of us at my institution have not been able to get pst-3dplot to  
work on 4 Macs of recent vintage running OS X. This includes the  
examples with the package.

Here is the listfiles output for the example 3d7.tex where the error  
was pst-3dplot.sty not found. the folder resides in the same  
directory as the application and the source. The \usepackage 
(pst-3dplot) is the line before the \usepackage(pstricks).We are  
using the TeX and Postscript option which is required to get pstricks  
to work.

Give us a hint please.
