Default LightWave - A mathematical paraboloid mesh...

Well, I've marked it as lightwave, but as I'm basically after one chunk of geometry, any convertible format would do...

I'm after a mathematically fairly accurate mesh in the shape of a paraboloid. This needs to go fairly far "up the sides" (think champagne glass).

Ad lathing is also easy, a parabola point chain would also get me close enough to the desired result.

I'm wondering if this is possible with the parametric objects, or superquadrics, which I have never used...
