I want to make a Torus in Minecraft - I found the formula on the SK Wiki;

//g stone (0.75-sqrt(x^2+y^2))^2+z^2 < 0.25^2

This creates a vertical torus, extending the torus in the y plane.

What I want is a horizontal torus, along the ground. I have tried simply making a Torus as is and Flipping/Rotating it, but I am unable to get it into the horizontal plane this way, and unable to modify the formula myself to give me the shape I need.

To change the orientation, just switch z with y in the equation, as such:

//g stone (0.75-sqrt(x^2+z^2))^2+y^2 < 0.25^2

Basically, the original equation create a torus around the z axis, which gives it a vertical orientation. To make a horizontal torus, we want to put it around the y axis, so we put the y term where z currently is and move z around to keep the equation in torus form.
