I would like to make visualisations of calabiyau manifolds, like this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CalabiYau_manifold (the image on the right).
It would appear that POVRay is the appropriate tool (I suspect, after much Googling, that the image was created with POVRay), but it can only handle 3 dimensions: here is the answer that a kind POVRay wizard gave me: My apologies if this question provokes only mirth because it's so stupid  my education stopped at a manifold being a part of an internal combustion engine . Thanks in advance Maurice

My apologies for insisting, but is there a kind soul who could tell me if what I want to do is feasable or not?
Thanks and regards

The answer is yes and an elegant POVRay solution is available at http://www.bugman123.com/Physics/Physics.html
