Well, I just ended up stripping down the function and rewriting it, perhaps I had a bit of otherwise bad logic. Regardless, thank you so much for your time spent helping me with this. You've guided me perfectly! :) Oct 26 accepted Computing Points in 3D Space Oct 26 comment Computing Points in 3D Space What eventually worked for me, as I've updated my question, was by setting the following: $x'=x\cos\theta+z\sin\theta$ and $z'=z\cos\theta-x\sin\theta$. I think you were on the right track, but maybe mismultiplied a matrix?

Oct 26 comment Computing Points in 3D Space @J.M.: I know that, however, it is not doing that.

Please see my edit. Oct 26 comment Computing Points in 3D Space Ah, so you're saying it will only yield a Z of zero on the first iteration. Which makes sense, because the first point would be on the z=0. And yes, I definitely plan on calculating the points off of the initial point with an incremented $\theta$ to preserve accuracy. I'll give this a go in a bit, and report back. Thanks!
