Spiralling Polygons in 3-D


Recommended Posts


Suppose that I have a Polygon—say a Hexagon. If I expand the Hexagon into the 3rd Dimension I would get something that I have heard called a “Hexagonal Prism."


BUT What if my Hexagon ROTATES as it rises in the 3rd Dimension after the manner of a Helix?

Does this have an official name? Can I write an Analytical Geometry Formula to Describe it?

PS: What if my Hexagon not only Rotates; but it also bends until it forms a “Hexagonal Spiraling Torus”?
