3D Plot of Convex hull

wwreith
I have a data set in which I am trying to plot a convex hull in 3 dim. Below is a subset of the points I would use. Columns 2,3,4 are my x,y,z coordinates. I found some ways to plot 2D convext hulls or find a convex hull for higher dimensions, but not how to plot the data.

I have have attached an example of what I am shooting for in my plot.

Thanks for the help!

Doing a simple search with: 3d convex hull r-project .... I find the geometry package supports construction of multidimensional convex hulls and construction of tessalations. That package also suggsets the rgl package, which makes me think that 3d tessellations may be suitable for input to the rgl::surface3d function.
