The helicoid is one of the three well-known minimal surfaces, along with the plane and the catenoid. In this Demonstration, you can plot a tilted helicoid with specified parameters: inner radius , outer radius, spiral step , tilt angle , number of turns and the direction of twist . Here is the angle between the axis and the normal to the surface.
