ParametricPlot3D

ParametricPlot3D[{fx,fy,fz},{u,umin,umax}]

produces a three-dimensional space curve parametrized by a variable u which runs from umin to umax.

ParametricPlot3D[{fx,fy,fz},{u,umin,umax},{v,vmin,vmax}]

produces a three-dimensional surface parametrized by u and v.

ParametricPlot3D[{{fx,fy,fz},{gx,gy,gz},},]

plots several objects together.

ParametricPlot3D[,{u,v}reg]

takes parameters {u,v} to be in the geometric region reg.
