pp3d = ParametricPlot3D[
   {Cos[u], Sin[u] + Cos[v], Sin[v]}, 
       {u, 0, 2*Pi}, {v, -Pi, Pi}]; 

pts = Cases[pp3d, {x_?NumericQ, y_?NumericQ, z_?NumericQ}, Infinity];

This table would have more than 9000 lines



To look at the first few {u, v, x, y, z} for this plot

Take[{ArcCos[#[[1]]], ArcSin[#[[3]]],
     Sequence @@ #} & /@ pts, 5] // Grid

How toTabulate points taken from ParametricPlot3D so that each point
( x,y,z coordinates as functions of u,v ) appears on a single line?
