sw1=ParametricPlot3D[Ringsweep1,{u,0,2 Pi},{v,0,Pi},Mesh->{18,3},PlotStyle->{Green,Thick},Boxed->False, Axes->None]

" I want to be able to see just 4 neat green thick parametric lines of above first plot 'rng', rotated around the vertical axis, without smearing up the patch and without using any ListPlots.  Please help. "
