In Mathematica, RevolutionPlot3D[, {, , }]generates a plot of the surface of revolution with height fz at radius t. The axis of revolution can be changed by using the option RevolutionAxis. This Demonstration shows these features for a parametric equation. If the vector is set to , the 2D graph of the equation will be shown instead.
