comment Why does LyX flag the following maths macro definition as an error?
Thanks for all the responses. It works when I use the package mathrsfs. What is interesting is that the problem only occurs when the formal script font is used in a macro definition. When I use the formal script font in the body of a LyX document the error does not occur, even if I don't use the package mathrsfs explicitly. I therefore thought that the same condition would naturally be extended to the context of the use of the LyX maths macro definition facility. I was dead wrong! Thanks.

I have studied your code and adapted it as shown below. I am able to draw nice pictures with it and I like the results. One more thing: How can one modify so that the wholes structure rotates as a rigid body?

Thanks for the style that you have posted @percusse. It produces the figure nicely. Let me analyze it and see how I can adapt it to my requirements.
