More Info:

 K3DSurf is a program to visualize and  manipulate
Multidimensional surfaces by using Mathematical
equations. It's also a "Modeler" for POV-Ray in
the area of parametric and iso surfaces.  

            Features :
* 3D, 4D, 5D and 6D HyperObjects visualization.
* Full support of all functions (like C language).
* Support of mouse event in the drawing
area(Left:Rotate, Right:scale and Midle:
* Animation and Morph effect.
* Povscript and Mesh file generation(and Run if
povray is installed). VRML2 and OBJ files also
* More than 100 well known examples.

An applet Java can be found at :
GTK an Xwindow version under work.

Hi all,
I'm pleased to announce you the achievement of the
most advanced feature for K3DSurf: Isosurface
morph effect by using an OpenGL based viewer.
K3DSurf has now an integrated OpenGL viewer that
make it far faster than before in manipulating
height resolution mathematical models. The gain of
performance is huge especially if you have an
OpenGL based graphics card, and the use of the CPU
can drop to...0% even with the morph effect in
action at full screen mode :). 
OpenGL opens new perspectives and adding new
features is now much much easier than before...
To resume, K3DSurf is changing (or should I say
"morphing") and the question now is : Are you
ready for it?
Enjoy ;-)

K3DSurf's Forum :

 K3DSurf 0.6.1 (9 Dec 06):

1) Condition area now work for Isosurfaces with
the OpenGL viewer.
2) "Tools" page now use the OpenGL viewer for real
time manipulation and generation of the
mathematical models.
3) A new independant component named "Control
Center" to control the drawing for Iso/Parametric
surfaces without having to switch between pages
(look at "Options" page).  
4) Grid max for Isosurfaces now is 60x60x60
(before it was 30x30x30)and 
the maximum number of polygons is now 99.000(
before it was 9900).
5) Infos in the OpenGL window for Parametric and
6) Bug fix and new examples for Isosurfaces.
