Re: Dashed space curve


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]}];
