I just posted the parametric equation for the "straight" tubular helix on
your other thread. Makemesh.inc should be in Ingo's zip. To run param.inc
you need to tell POV-ray where to look for makemesh.inc, you can either
drop all the inc's in POVray/ include directory, or edit povray.ini in the
renderer directory to point to whatever directory you unzipped the param
tool in. This is in the Windows version, I do not know if or how the Mac
version differs.
