The $R$-hulloid, in the Euclidean space $\mathbb{R}^3$, of the set of vertices $V$ of a tetrahedron $T$ is the mimimal closed set containing $V$ such that its complement is union of open balls of radius $R$. When $R$ is greater than the circumradius of $T$, the boundary of the $R$-hulloid consists of $V$ and possibly of four spherical subsets of well defined spheres of radius $R$ through the vertices of $T$. The existence of a value $R^*$ such that these subsets collapse into one point $O^*\not \in V$ is investigated; in such case $O^*$ is in the interior of $T$ and belongs to four spheres of radius $R^*$, each one through three vertices of $T$ and not containing the fourth one. As a consequence, the range of $\rho$ such that $V$ is a $\rho$-body is described completely. This work generalizes to three dimensions previous results, proved in the planar case and related to the three circles Johnson's Theorem.
