Hello, I looked for this specific question in the archive and I did not find. I want to create a contour (ie. not smooth) ColorFunction over a parametricplot. For example: ParametricPlot3D[ {Cos[ \[Phi]] Sin[\[Theta]], Sin[\[Phi]] Sin[\[Theta]], Cos[\[Theta]]}, {\[Phi], 0, 2 \[Pi]}, {\[Theta], 0, \[Pi]}, PlotPoints -> 100, Mesh -> None, ColorFunction -> Function[{x, y, z, \[Phi], \[Theta]}, Hue[Sin[6 \[Phi]] Sin[6 \[Theta]]]], ColorFunctionScaling -> True] Here the colorfunction is smooth, what directive should I add to obtain a contour of the colour and to manage the number of contours ? Thanks in advance. Mathias Blandeau From: Blandeau M.N.
