I'm after the equations of the projection

of a rotated torus on the xy-plane.

Imagine you have a donut,

which is shaped like a torus.

Now you symetrically poke it on a stick,

so the stick goes twice through the donut.

You place the stick before the x-axis and rotate it

with a light source before it.

See the borders of the shadow of the donut ?

I would like to find the equations of them.

If the donut is paralel to the xy-plane, you have 2 circles.

One bigger and one smaller.

If the donut is paralell to the xz-plane, you have 1 circle,

cut, pulled apart along x and a rectangle in between.

What if the donut is rotated by 45° ?

What if the donut is rotated by another angle ?

@Bob:

Thank you for helping me with the sphube-line intersection.

I would need some more time, there.
