Surfaces in Cylindrical / 3D polar Coordinates

I am trying to plot 3D surfaces in cylindrical / spherical coordinates. I was wondering if anyone could help. I would like create something that looked like this:


or as a surface bound to a specific radius. I want to use scatter data. Any ideas are appreciated.

Hi @scourtney1992,

Perhaps a parametric surface plot would work in this case. You would need to convert the polar coordinates to 3D Cartesian coordinates, but there are some examples of this in
