# Question:Connect in a pointplot made with seq

## Question:Connect in a pointplot made with seq

Maple

So I want to display a plot containing a spiral and a polygon graph approximating the shape. I use a seq to make the points in pointplot3d and then connect them with the connect option. It looks like this:

`y(t):=t-><cos(t),sin(t),t>:`
`graph := spacecurve(y(t), t = 0 .. 6, thickness = 3, axes = box, color = blue):`
`poly6 := pointplot3d({seq([cos(t), sin(t), t], t = 0 .. 6, 1)}, connect, axes = box, `
`color = red, thickness = 3, caption = {n = 6}):display(graph, poly6);`
` `
` `
`But I want to have more points in order to make the polygon curve more accurate`
` to the original graph. The only way I've found to do this, is by inputting 1/2 for the`
` step in the seq command, doubling the amount of points. `
` `
`The result is this:`
`poly12 := pointplot3d({seq([cos(t), sin(t), t], t = 0 .. 6, 1/2)}, connect, axes = box,`
` color = red, thickness = 3, caption = {n = 12}):display(graph, poly12);`
` `
`As is seen right away, the 12 points are fine and on the graph as expected, but the`
` "connect"-lines `
`become pretty much all jumbled up.`
` `
`I would very much like to have some help to fix this!  `
` `
`I also noticed that I have make t=0..6 instead of t=0..2*Pi, as would be normal when`
` working with these geometries, but for some reason, the last point doesn't go further`
` than t=6, so this is what I chose to have a polygon curve that ends the same place as`
` the original graph.`
` `
`Thanks a ton in advance!`
