Not sure how that works and it sounds complicated. I admit the result 
looks good, though....

I guess what would be really cool is to perform all modelling just like 
you did in some other 3d parameter space, and then simply describe how 
the 3d parameter space transforms into ordinary 3d cartesian space. In 
this case the parameter space would be cylindrical...
