Hi,

Im looking for a free 3D Pie Charts class.  The class need to be fairly robust as I will be using it to embed in PDF Reports and feeding it DB data.  Support for Applet format a plus but not a requirement.  I have found a number of free classes for 2D which are really very nice (cart2d at Soundforge and others) but nothing good yet for 3D Pie Charts.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  I have found plenty of Comercial options but they are rather costly, especially as my comany is Argentine and the peso is now about 3.6 to the dollar.

Thanks in advance!

Jason

Look up the documentation for:

kiwi.ui.graph.PieChart3D

And see if it's what you are looking for.

Cheers,

I'll check out kiwi, kylar.  xxMariusxx, JFreeChart is nice but I could only find 2D Pie Charts, though it does have very nice 3D Bar Graphs and other 3D types.  The 2D Pie chart is very nice but...I need 3D Pie Charts.  I get back to kylar after I check out kiwi.  Thanks

Well, I checked out Kiwi, it ok but there is one major problem.  The labeling.  First there is no control over the labels in pie charts and second (and much more importantly) if you make a Pie Chart with say one set of data and for elements where 1 element is 98% and the other 3 are 1% the lables for the three sections are piled one on top of the other.  Visually very ugly and alos in renders the numbers un readable.

So thanks for the suggestion but I still looking......
