pp3d1 = ParametricPlot3D[
{u Cos[v], v, u Sin[v]},
{u, -1, 1}, {v, 0, 1.5 Pi},
PlotStyle -> Thickness[.4],
Axes -> None,
Boxed -> False]


The outer points are


pts1 = Cases[pp3d1,
GraphicsComplex[v_, __] :> v][[1]];


pts1 === pp3d1[[1, 1]]


True


Length[pts1]


4592


For center points


pp3d2 = ParametricPlot3D[
{u Cos[v], v, u Sin[v]},
{u, -1, 1}, {v, 0, 1.5 Pi},
PlotStyle -> AbsoluteThickness[1],
Axes -> None,
Boxed -> False]


pts2 = pp3d2[[1, 1]];


Length[pts2]


2164


Drawing inner surface between two transparent outer layers


pp3d1 = ParametricPlot3D[{
{u Cos[v], v, u Sin[v]},
{u Cos[v], v, u Sin[v]}},
{u, -1, 1}, {v, 0, 1.5 Pi},
PlotStyle -> {
{Opacity[.1], Thickness[.4]},
AbsoluteThickness[1]},
Axes -> None,
Boxed -> False]
