Hi Rob,

VisAD's default DataRenderers only do volume rendering for
Linear3DSets. If you have a Field with a Gridded3DSet,
you'll need to resample() to a Linear3DSet and link the
result of that to the DisplayImpl to see a volme rendering.

Direct volume rendering for Gridded3DSets would require a
custom DataRenderer (see the tutorial).

Good luck,
Bill
