Is it possible to directly graph in cylindrical coordinates?

I know that for polar graphs I can write curve( (r(t) ; theta(t) ) , t , a , b)

(extra spaces added to make it easier to read)


And for spherical I can use surface( ( r(s,t) ; theta(s,t) ; phi(s,t) ), s , a , b , t , c , d)


Is there something similar for cylindrical coordinates?

I tried "combining" the 2 notions and writing surface( ( r(s,t) ; theta(s,t) ) , z(s,t) , s , a , b , t , c , d)

but that gives an error in the number of parameters, and

surface( ( r(s,t) ; theta(s,t) ; z(s,t) ) , s , a , b , t , c , d) behaves as in spherical

I suppose I could define my functions in advance through transformations, but I was wondering if the function is already built in or if there is an easier workaround

Thanks
