Seashell formula

hi folks, a shoutout from newbie land.

i am still at the mathematical basics. please see att. my simple and suboptimal expr for a seashell. (http://local.wasp.uwa.edu.au/~pbourke/surfaces_curves/shell/)

i am in trouble with the amount of necessary parameters, because the expr node in vvvv is pretty new to me. so i used fixed ones. i managed to render a seashell mesh, but definitely a shitty one. anyone capable of breaking the formula down to expr with dynamic params?

cheers,

dd

please post a patch that also includes a rendering of your data, that would be easier for all to review.
