Hi,

Thanks. I finally found the following form, thanks to Brett Champion

xmin := 0
xmax := 2*Pi
ymin := 0
ymax := Pi
ro[t_, p_] := Max[1 - 3*Sin[2*p]*Sin[5*t + Pi/2], 0]
xxx[t_, p_] := ro[t, p]*Sin[p]*Cos[t]
yyy[t_, p_] := ro[t, p]*Sin[p]*Sin[t]
zzz[t_, p_] := ro[t, p]*Cos[p]
ParametricPlot3D[{yyy[t, p], -xxx[t, p], zzz[t, p]}, {t, xmin, xmax},
{p,ymin, ymax}, PlotPoints -> {11, 5}, Mesh -> All, MaxRecursion -> 0,
PlotRange -> All, NormalsFunction -> None]

Regards,
