Tachyon in SageMathCloud

I'm new to Sage and only beginner experience in python, so there may be something obvious I'm missing.

I'm trying to create, initially, some plots using Tachyon in SMC. I cut and pasted Niles Johnson's code at this question, namely

sage: f = lambda t: (t,t^2,t^3)
sage: t = Tachyon(camera_center=(5,0,4))
sage: t.texture('t')
sage: t.light((-20,-20,40), 0.2, (1,1,1))
sage: t.parametric_plot(f,-5,5,'t',min_depth=6)

and I get the following error

tachyon /projects/6e9b9fc6-5d3c-4c2a-a57f-b5fe78a365fd/.sage/temp/compute2dc1/22136/tmp_Iy4Cih.dat  -format PNG  -o /projects/6e9b9fc6-5d3c-4c2a-a57f-b5fe78a365fd/.sage/temp/compute2dc1/22136/tmp_weeBQD.png   ; rm -f "/projects/6e9b9fc6-5d3c-4c2a-a57f-b5fe78a365fd/.sage/temp/compute2dc1/22136/tmp_Iy4Cih.dat"

NameError: global name 'sage' is not defined

What should I do? It doesn't seem related to anything in the code used.
