3D scatter plots?

Many thanks for sharing this amazing library!

I am seriously considering replacing my outdated 3D charting library with the Helix 3D Toolkit. However, I have one concern, and I have not been able to find any clarification in this discussion forum or the toolkit samples, nor through a Google search, so here goes:

Is there any support in the Helix 3D Toolkit to draw 3D scatter plots, similar to the MATLAB function scatter3? I am primarily looking for the ability to plot small spheres in the specified XYZ position with different fill colors depending on the point values, like this:

See the SurfacePlotDemo for a similar example. Use a MeshBuilder to create a geometry of all the spheres (performance due to high number of triangles can be a problem) and use texture coordinates and a gradient material to define the fill colors! This would be a cool example to add :-) https://helixtoolkit.codeplex.com/workitem/10039
