So I was doodling around and came up with a problem of finding an equation for a tilted parabola. Basically, a parabola in xy plane which was rotated around a line that goes through points (1,0) and (0,1), making the curve a 3D one. I realize that this curve is a subset of points that define a paraboloid but I have no clue how to extract one from the other. Any help?
