I am running RStudio in an Ubuntu 16.4 guest OS on VirtualBox.
When I execute the code lines for the “Basic 3D Scatter Plot” example from the tutorial under https://plot.ly/r/3d-scatter-plots/ it crashes the whole guest OS, i.e. the virtual machine totally crashes.
It might be related to the fact that Webgl is not working inside the browsers of the Ubuntu guest system.
Currently, I am not sure, whether this is a problem of plot.ly, RStudio or Virtualbox. I hope someone can help me with that.
