I am using POV-Ray but have been unable to find a simple way of making a
torus-like shape that has an elliptical cross-section (if this is the
right way to describe it).
The torus looks like a circle that has been rotated around an axis to form
the shape; I would like to obtain a similar shape formed from an ellipse.
Instead of looking like a round "tube" bent into a circle, it would be a
squashed elliptical tube bent into a circle.
I could make such a shape by using lots of spheres scaled down on one axis
and placed in a circular formation, but this would require a huge number
of spheres to look smooth.
Is there another way of defining such a shape?
Your assistance would be appreciated.
