Yeah, through a lot of trial and error. Basically, I'm telling a computer algebra system to graph a line, revolve it around the y-axis, and then playing with the appearance functions a bit.

If I was really keen I'd figure out some way to easily vectorize these images and get em plottered for maximum perfection, but the ol' xacto remains my most trusty tool.

What program is it that you're using?

I'm using Mathematica. We had to take some computer math course concurrent with calculus class and they gave us a free copy with a 2-yr license.
