ParametricPlot3D

ParametricPlot3D[{ ,  ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}] produces a three-dimensional space curve parametrized by a variable t which runs from tmin to tmax.
ParametricPlot3D[{ ,  ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}, {u, umin, umax}] produces a three-dimensional surface parametrized by t and u.
ParametricPlot3D[{ ,  ,  }, { ,  ,  }, ... }, ... ] plots several objects together.
ParametricPlot3D[{ ,  ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}, "style"] generates a three-dimensional parametric plot of { ,  ,  } in the designated style.
ParametricPlot3D[{ ,  ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}, "style1", "style2"] generates a three-dimensional parametric plot of { ,  ,  } in the primary style,"style1" and the secondary style, "style2".

• Primary plot styles for 3D plots include: Default, Technical, Minimal, Business, and Colorful.
• Secondary plot styles for 3D plots include: Frame, NoFrame, Grid, NoGrid, SmallPoints, LargePoints, Tall, Wide, ViewLeft, ViewRight, and ViewCenter.

ParametricPlot3D[{ ,  ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}, {zmin, zmax}] generates a three-dimensional parametric plot of { ,  ,  } over the specified z-axis range from zmin to zmax.
ParametricPlot3D[{ ,  ,  }, {t, tmin, tmax}, "style", {zmin, zmax}] combines both specifications for plot style and z-axis range.

Examples

Using InstantCalculators

Here is the InstantCalculator for the ParametricPlot3D function. Enter the parameters for your calculation and click Calculate to see the result.

Entering Commands Directly

You can paste a template for this command via the Text Input button on the ParametricPlot3D Function Controller.

This makes a parametric plot that projects into a Lissajous figure.
