Rotation 3D model

Hi, I´m learning about EJS and I need to rotate a cylinder around Z axis using a variable (angular velocity). Could I get any example about that?

define these variables in variables page

evolution page set
t and dt as independent and increment

d (angle)/dt = omega

in the cylinder3D set
[[angle,0,0,1]] // first is angle, 2nd is x-axis, 3rd is y-axis and 4th is z-axis

set attached example
