Re: Calabi-Yau Manifold visualization

Dr Peter Hennes did work on
"Weierstrass Representations of Minimal Real Kaehler Submanifolds"
in 6d. Although not the same as 6D Calabi-Yau ( also called null Ricci)
they are closely related areas.

He might help you
if you asked nicely.
I did some 3d projections in Mathematica based on his equations
 and I know it is possible.
I have two surfaces ( notebooks 1.2mb, 1.9mb).
I can probably get better pictures if you want them.
They aren't copywrited yet.

Here's a notebook I pulled up with a sherlock search.

(***********************************************************************

                    Mathematica-Compatible Notebook

This notebook can be used on any computer system with Mathematica 3.0,
MathReader 3.0, or any compatible application. The data for the notebook
starts with the line of stars above.

To get the notebook into a Mathematica-compatible application, do one of
the following:

* Save the data starting with the line of stars above into a file
  with a name ending in .nb, then open the file inside the application;

* Copy the data starting with the line of stars above to the
  clipboard, then use the Paste menu command inside the application.

Data for notebooks contains only printable 7-bit ASCII and can be
sent directly in email or through ftp in text mode.  Newlines can be
CR, LF or CRLF (Unix, Macintosh or MS-DOS style).

NOTE: If you modify the data for this notebook not in a Mathematica-
compatible application, you must delete the line below containing the
word CacheID, otherwise Mathematica-compatible applications may try to
use invalid cache data.

For more information on notebooks and Mathematica-compatible
applications, contact Wolfram Research:
  web: http://www.wolfram.com

  phone: +1-217-398-0700 (U.S.)

Notebook reader applications are available free of charge from
Wolfram Research.
