Paste the following expression in a notebook and evaluate it. FrontEndExecute[ FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup[ "AddOns", "Graphics`ContourPlot3D`" ] ] This will summon the documentation for the standard package Graphics`ContourPlot3D`. Loading the package into the kernel will add a definition for a function named ContourPlot3D. This function should do what you want. The default behavior is to generate the level surface f(x, y, z) = 0. -- P.J. Hinton Mathematica Programming Group paulh at wolfram.com Wolfram Research, Inc.
