Hi, Sorry, my question is not clear. I want to plot the surface with user defined thickness. I mean I want to see thicker surface than default thickness.

Or do you want to look from the side? Plot3D[x^5 y, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}, PlotRange -> All, ViewPoint -> {0, -3, 0}, PlotPoints -> 40, Mesh -> False, AxesLabel -> {x, y, TraditionalForm[x^5 y]}, ImageSize -> 400, BoxRatios -> {1, 1, 1}]; Peter P.S.: I did not read your 2nd message before answering the first one.
