Multiconic surfaces are a generalization of the type of surface called polyconic in numerical control of machine tools. The general theory is developed in this paper using a new parametrization. In the original form there was a problem as to whether or not a point that satisfies surface equations actually belonged to the intended surface. This difficulty is removed by the new technique.
