AbsoluteThickness - a feature or a problem?


Hello,

The following is on a tune of Bob Hanlon BobHanlon at aol.com Fri, 14 Feb 2003 03:18:25, [mg39403]
Re: [mg39385] How to change thickness of curves drawn by ParametricPlot3D?


Let us take a large enough value of the absolute thickness, say, 50.


Needs["Graphics`ParametricPlot3D`"];

ParametricPlot3D[{Cos[t], Sin[t],
      1, {AbsoluteThickness[50], RGBColor[1, 0, 0]}}, {t, 0, 2Pi}];


      
At the graph, the outer surface of the torus is VERY jagged.
At the same time, the inners side of the torus is fairly smooth.

Should this be construed rather as a feature or rather as a bug?
