We've just heard (belatedly) about this really nice Java Applet called LiveGraphics3d that comes from the Mathematica-using math community.

What's quite amazing is that you can define lines and surfaces using equations. It can handle at least a few thousand points quite well, too.

Martin Kraus, the creator, has some nice examples of impossible objects :
