 Author Comment/Response ParametricPlot3D question 11/04/05 01:00am Could you please help me to understand better the ParametricPlot3D function. I found an example: ParametricPlot3D[{Sin[t], Cos[t], u}, {t, 0, 2Pi}, {u, 0, 4}] - it produces the cylinder. I understand that the "u" parameter is actually the height of the created cylinder. Could you help me to understand what are Sin[t] and Cos[t] and that the t runs from 0 to 2Pi? And the question -- if the above function creates the cylinder, then how can I specify the radius/diameter for it? and just one more related question? in a very similar function: ParametricPlot3D[{Sin[t], Cos[t], t/3}, {t, 0, 15}] What are Sin[t], Cos[t] If the function produces the 3D curve -- How to set the length of the curve and it diameter? Thank you very much for your support! Leo URL: ,
