Hi Russ!
\!\(<< Graphics`ContourPlot3D`\n
      x\^2\/16 - y\^2\/25 - 2\ z, {x, \(-4\), 4}, {y, \(-5\), 5}, {z,
        4}, BoxRatios \[Rule] {1, 1, 1}]; \n
  Print[\*"\"\<\!\(x\^2\/16\)-\!\(y\^2\/25\)- 2 z= 0\>\""]\) You may
also want to take a look at my web page and pick the
subject "Superficies" from the index.

I hope this helps
