Consider

curves = {{x, x, 0}, {x, 2 x, 0}}
ParametricPlot3D[curves, {x, 0, 1}]
ParametricPlot3D[curves, {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, Green}]
ParametricPlot3D[{{x, x, 0}, {x, 2 x, 0}}, {x, 0, 1}, PlotStyle -> {Red, Green}]

In the first two cases, neither does ParametricPlot3D automatically colour grade the curves nor apply the explicit PlotSyle.

It works as intended in the third syntax.

Why is this so?


Note:Doesn't occur in Plot,Plot3D,ParametricPlot

curves = {{x, x, 0}, {x, 2 x, 0}};

ParametricPlot3D[Evaluate @ curves, {x, 0, 1}]

ParametricPlot3D[Evaluate @ curves, {x, 0, 1},    PlotStyle -> {Red, Green}]

    $\begingroup$ works but why is it needed here and not for others, say plot3D? $\endgroup$
