```What I have been doing is using a combination of Rasterize and Magnify to
get the desired dimensions, then export the image as a PNG.  For example:
plot=ParametricPlot3D[{Cos[\[Theta]], Sin[\[Theta]], Sqrt[\[Theta]]},
{\[Theta], 0, 6 Pi}]
image=Rasterize[Magnify[plot,2]]
Export["image.png",image]

Change the magnification as needed to get the desired dpi setting.

I realize this is not a vector graphic, but the resulting image is
reasonable in size and is very flexible to work with.
