what may ContourPlot3D[] do ? compute a surface 
c=f[x,y,z] ???

| Hi,
| I have a rather complicated scalar function over 
real space, let's call it S(x,y,z).
| Would it be possible to get Mathematica to find 
the equi-contours of this function spaced by a 
certain delta S, and delta x, delta y, delta z, or 
better yet, delta l = sqrt ( (delta x)^2 + (delta 
y)^2 + (delta z)^2 )?
| That's a small l above (delta l), for line 
| Now that I think about it, I would have to give 
it an error tolerance, let's say epsilon. So it 
would need to find S sub i (for the i'th value) 
plus or minus epsilon.
| It sounds so easy to say, or write down, but I 
don't even know where to start to have Mathematica 
do this.
| Thanks,
| Skip
