I have a 3D surface defined by (e.g.)

x^4 + x^5 + z^5yx ? y^4 == 0

and want to visualise it. I did my research, but found no hint how this can be done. Any pointers very welcome. :) Btw. this one is easily solvable for Z, but what it there were a z^3 term contained in the eqn?

Gianluca,

thank you very much for your Answer. Works like a charm. How come i couldnÂ’t find this in the documentation? I did search and browse a lot!

You can use ContourPlot3D:

ContourPlot3D[
 x^4 + x^5 + z^5 y x \[Minus] y^4 == 0, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 
  1}, {z, -1, 1}]
