Jeremy, It is difficult to understand your question. 1) Do you mean that instead of a rectangular bounding box you would prefer some kind of cylinder. You could plot a wireframe cylinder that enclosed around the rest of your plot, but it probably wouldn't look very good. To make the cylinder look like a cylinder it would probably have too many lines that would confuse the rest of the plot. 2) Do you mean that you want to plot using cylindrical coordinates? Then you could use the CylindricalPlot3D command from the ParametricPlot3D standard package. If you could give an example or more information you will probably obtain a more helpful answer.

Thanks, Jeremy
