Your description is not very clear to me.  If you described *exactly* 
the plotting method that you thought about, we could help you implement 
it in Mathematica.

This is one way for examining 3D scalar functions:

   x^2 + y^2 - z^2 == c, {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}, {z, -2, 2}],
  {{c, 1}, 0, 3}]

(You might want to experiment with the option ContourStyle -> 
Opacity[.5] too.)

Also, search for "volume visualization" or "volume rendering" on Google.
