Here's a modified version of the example given in the Help browser that does what you want: ParametricPlot3D[{Cos[5t],Sin[3t],Sin[t],Dashing[{0.02}]},{t,0,2\[Pi]}]; Generally, the 4th component of the parameteric curve can be used to specify properties for the curve. Here is a version of the above that has parameter-dependent curve properties. ParametricPlot3D[{Cos[5t],Sin[3t],Sin[t],{Hue[t/(2\[Pi])],Dashing[{0.02t/(2\ [Pi])}]}},{t,0,2\[Pi]}]; Sreve Luttrell "Michael" <mika_lists at yahoo.com> wrote in message news:c45n3g$s0t$1 at smc.vnet.net... > Hello, > > I would like to draw a dashed space curve (using ParametricPlot3D). > How can I achieve that? > > Regards, > Michael >
