If you want to play around with the three-dimensional visualization of Cas-A yourself, the best way to view this is through a three dimensional imager such as Mayavi.  After installing Mayavi, the Cassiopeia-A three dimensional file can be found here:

Another way to enjoy the three-dimensional structure of Cas-A is to play around with Professor DeLaney’s original 3D PDF from her paper:
