PSTricks offers excellent macros to insert more or less complex 
graphics into a document. pstricks.tex itself is the base for several 
other additional packages, which are mostly named pst-xxxx, 
like pst-rubans. 

Save the files


in any place, where latex or any other TeX program will find it.

pst-rubans uses the extended version of the keyval package. So
be sure that you 
- have installed xkeyval with the special pst-xkey
  (CTAN: tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/xkeyval/)
- do not load another package after pst-rubans, which loads
  the old keyval.sty or pst-key.tex

If you like to get the documentation file in another format run 

latex pst-rubans-doc.tex
bibtex pst-rubans-doc
latex pst-rubans-doc.tex
dvips pst-rubans-doc.dvi

to get a PostScript file. But pay attention, that the pst-rubans
files are saved in the above mentioned way, before you run
latex on the documentation file.

The intermediate DVI file works only with viewers which can 
interprete the embedded PostScript code.

For another PDF output read the introduction from
the documentation.

pst-rubans – Draw three-di­men­sional rib­bons

The pack­age uses PStricks and pst-solides3d to draw three di­men­sional rib­bons on a cylin­der, torus, sphere, cone or paraboloid. The width of the rib­bon, the num­ber of turns, the colour of the outer and the in­ner sur­face of the rib­bon may be set. In the case of cir­cu­lar and con­i­cal he­lices, one may also choose the num­ber of rib­bons.
