Thanks for your this solution but changing bounding sphere size change
things randomly.
Setting size to 10d or Double.MAX_VALUE changes same behavior.

I'll do with it. I changed gridded3DSet with colored LineStripArray, that
solved most of my "light problems".
For shapes, I used emissive color to simulate ambient Light.
I still use Visad for scales, animation and 2D renderings.

Hi Laurent,

VisAD uses:

  BoundingSphere(new Point3d(0.0,0.0,0.0), 2000000.0);

Perhaps this is too small for your application. If you
are changing the BoundingSphere, please try changing it
to Double.MAX_VALUE. Does this make the problem go
away? If so, we might make this the default in VisAD.

We might try Double.POSITIVE_INFINITY, but I'd worry
that some Java3D implementations might not like that.

Thank you,
Bill
