Currently im using a graphying application called "Autograph" and modeling a building with a dome shaped roof on top. I need to define parabolic shapes in 3d system.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But i cant do it ( my math knowledge is pretty elementary)

What would be the basic parabolic function in 3d that i can base my model on?

I have three sets of coordinates that have to be on the parabola.
