plottools[semitorus] - generate 3-D plot object for a semitorus

Calling Sequence

semitorus([x, y, z], a..b, r, R, capped=boolean, options)


[x, y, z]


center of the semitorus



range of the semitorus in radians



(optional) radius of the meridian; default=1



(optional) distance from center of meridian to center of the semitorus; default=2



(optional) specifies whether the resulting object should be capped; default is true



(optional) equations of the form option=value. For a complete list, see plot3d/options.



The semitorus command creates a three-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is a section of the torus centered at [x,y,z], whose meridian has radius r and distance from the center of a meridian to the center of the semitorus is R.  The semitorus starts at radian angle a and ends at radian angle b.


A call to semitorus produces a plot data object, which can be used in a PLOT3D data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.


Remaining arguments are interpreted as options, which are specified as equations of the form option = value. For more information, see plottools and plot3d/options.
