I have Needs["Graphics`"] in my Init file, so I thought I'd never need to manually load graphics packages like Graphics`ParametricPlot3D`.

Your examples proved me wrong. If I don't load that package, ParametricPlot3D works, but not with the 4-element ranges you've used below.

Including a step-size isn't necessary for most of your examples, but it is for the last one. It seems to hang up my machine if I leave it out, and even Pi/30 is too small for comfort.
