public abstract class SpaceCurveParametricextends SpaceCurveA space curve that is defined by parametric equations, giving points of the form (x(t),y(t),z(t)). A parametric curve can be rendered as a "tube" that surrounds the curve; this tube has square cross section, with the orientation of the square at a given point depending on the torsion of the curve at that point. A SpaceCurveParametric renders itself as a tube if it is being drawn in a
View3DLit. In a plain
View3D, it renders itself as a curve.
