ActiveX-tra

Plot 3D graphs in Excel with this handy add-in.

AsdGraph3D Pro Excel Addin gives you the capability to create three-dimensional graphs with data from Excel spreadsheets. These 3D graphs can also plot ActiveX controls that can be used in programs such as Microsoft Office and Internet Explorer.

The 3D graphs this add-in produces aren't flashy and would be best used for programming purposes rather than for design or illustrations. Graphic design experience left us unimpressed with the look of the graphs that the program produces; however, from a programming perspective, they're quite sufficient. There's a good built-in Help file that explains the program's controls and some of its more complicated features. Nonprogrammers might have to spend some quality time with this Help file before they can take advantage of the program's true capabilities; however, we feel that programmers will be able to understand this program and make good use of its functionality without a hitch. AsdGraph3D Pro Excel Addin has additional value to the Windows user because it's designed to work with Microsoft Excel, a program that most users are likely to have already installed on their computers and are more than likely going to know how to use, too.

This is a trial version of the software. Some features are disabled after the 15-day trial period. AsdGraph3D Pro Excel Addin installs and uninstalls with no problems. Programmers will find this program a useful tool, but artists and designers will want something more. Nevertheless, we recommend it.
