Jeremy, You can use ParametricPlot3D to do something like this: f[x_, y_] := 3*x*E^(-x^2 - y^2); ParametricPlot3D[{r*Cos[q], r*Sin[q], f[r*Cos[q], r*Sin[q]]}, {r, 0, 2}, {q, 0, 2*Pi}] ---- Selwyn Hollis On Wednesday, March 19, 2003, at 03:24 AM, Jeremy wrote: > Is there any way to make Plot3D display its output in a cylinder, > instead of > a box? > > Thanks, > Jeremy > >
