ParametricLinePlot3D
Posted: Oct 24, 2013 11:27 PM

R=2.;a=1.;
" Bend-Rolling circle on cylinder by gln "
ring={a Cos[R Sin[u]/a],a Sin[R Sin[u]/a],R Cos[u]} ;
Ringsweep={a Cos[R Sin[u]/a+t],a Sin[R Sin[u]/a+t],R Cos[u]};
Ringsweep1={a Cos[R Sin[u]/a]Cos[v]-Sin[v]*a Sin[R Sin[u]/a],a Cos[R Sin[u]/a]Sin[v]+Cos[v]*a Sin[R Sin[u]/a],R Cos[u]};
rng=ParametricPlot3D[ring,{u,0,2 Pi},PlotStyle->{Green,Thick}]
sw=ParametricPlot3D[Ringsweep,{u,0,2 Pi},{t,0,Pi},Mesh->{18,3},PlotStyle->{Green,Thick}]
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. "
