I can't try to reproduce your problem because I do not have OSX, but I
suspect it has to do
with the default terminal used in gnuplot (I guess X11?) not having
mouse support and other
features required by draw3d. You could try changing the gnuplot_term
plot option to other
terminal in OSX's version of gnuplot (see "? gnuplo_term").
You could also try adding the option
to your plot3d commands and see whether you like it.
