In this paper, we investigate symmetric graph drawing in three dimensions. We show that the problem of drawing a graph with a maximum number of symmetries in three dimensions is NP-hard. Then we present a polynomial time algorithm for finding maximum number of three dimensional symmetries in planar graphs.
