Re: Re: How to set linewidth in 3-D graphics?


Yes, your code works -- and an interesting graphical treatment, too!

But it is not unreasonable to expect, say

   ParametricPlot3D[{Cos[phi], Sin[phi], phi}, {phi, 0,
     2Pi}, PlotStyle -> Thickness[0.01]]

to work, since the 2D analog

   ParametricPlot[{Sin[t], Cos[t]}, {t, 0, Pi}, PlotStyle -> 
Thickness[0.01]]

does work as expected.
