Torus[axis, majrad, minrad, facets] generates a torus of specified major and minor radii, centered at the origin of axis, with its major axis in the direction of axis, and facets segments around either axis.
Torus[axis, majrad, minrad, {majfacets, minfacets}] uses majfacets segments along the major circumference and minfacets segments along the minor circumference.

Torus returns a list of Mathematica graphics primitives that are functions of mechanism location variables.
• Either majrad or minrad may be replaced with a list {rx, ry} to produce a torus with an elliptical major radius or an elliptical cross section.
• Given Torus[axis, {majrx, majry}, {minrx, minry}, ... ] the torus will self-intersect if  .
• The following options can be given:

• The Angle option specifies the swept angle about the major axis only.
