I'm attempting to render a very old scene I created in POV-Ray v3.1 with
  

POV-Ray 3.6 and am getting an error on a lathe object where I've used a 
 

vector instead of a UV_Vector.  Unfortunately the value for the vector i
s  

generated by vrotate() like so...

#declare brace1_1 = vrotate(<curve+ringThickness, 0, 0>, maxAngle*z) -
  

<curve-barrelRadius, 0, 0>

How do I convert brace1_1 to a uv_vector so x=u and y=v?

i'm an idiot.  Ignore this post.  I'll repost it in the povray.general  
newsroom.  Sorry.

My name is also Charles Worm. Very interesting to know that there is
somebody with exactly the same name as i have.
