I've parametrized the intersection of a (more or less) horizontal planes with a (more or less) vertical tube (both are plotted using ParametricPlot3D.)

I can plot the intersection just fine, using ParametricPlot3D. However when I try to make the intersection more visible by using PlotStyle->{Thickness[x]} the plot of the intersection alone looks fine, but when I use Show to co-plot all three together the intersection renders poorly, it appears choppy.

Is there a way to adjust the thickness of a 1-D surface in a 3-D plot that will make it look like an opaque tube?

Thanks,
Keith
