Hi,

Is that:





Animate[

RevolutionPlot3D[{u*Cos[v], u*Sin[v], (1/2)*v}, {u, -1, 1}, {v, 0.1,

   a}], {a, 0, 2 \[Pi]}, AnimationRate -> 0.1,

 AnimationRepetitions -> 1]



what you would like to get?



If yes, I would propose to make instead a list of graphics, for example like this:



tab = Table[

   RevolutionPlot3D[{u*Cos[v], u*Sin[v], (1/2)*v}, {u, -1, 1}, {v, 0,

     a}], {a, 0.1, 2 \[Pi], 0.1}];



and then play it in another cell:



ListAnimate[tab, AnimationRepetitions -> 1]



Have fun, Alexei











Hi,



I want to animate the drawing of a ruled surface.



So, for example, say I want to animate the drawing of a helix.



I create the surface with this command:



ParametricPlot3D[{u*Cos[v], u*Sin[v], (1/2)*v}, {u, -1, 1}, {v, 0, 2 \[Pi]}]



Then I want an animation of the surface being drawn as the line sweeps out the surface. So I try this which shows the line but doesn't animate the drawing of the surface.



Animate[ParametricPlot3D[{u*Cos[v], u*Sin[v], (1/2)*v}, {u, -4, 4}, PlotRange -> 6], {v, 0, 4 \[Pi]}]



Any ideas? Thanks!
