comment Revolution plot with 2 variable
It gave me exactly what I wanted, so I don't see why it had been downvoted (I should have answered to the answer you gave, I'm sorry). As I am far from understanding Mathematica, I cannot see a better alternative.

comment Revolution plot with 2 variable
I understand the approach and it does seem to be more efficient, but I'm not quite sure how derivate the function the way you did if it gets more complex. For instance, 0==1/2 + x^2/2 + y^2/2 - x^2 Cos[(13 \[Pi])/64]^2 - 2 x Cos[(13 \[Pi])/64] Sin[(13 \[Pi])/64] - Sin[(13 \[Pi])/64]^2 is a simple hyperbola equation (which is what I'm working with right now). I can deriviate the equation by myself, but I don't understand how to do it the way you did.

Thanks, it does work! Except for the y after the equation, it's just what I was looking for. And I'll keep in mind how to solve the equation, it might get complicated later on...

Because it's not the same parabola, you could have one with a x*y term. Or an hyperbola, with both x^2 and y^2.

comment Plot a 3D graph while changing the range of the parameter
What I'm looking for is the 3D graph of the evolution of the surface between all of these lines.

comment Plotting a dot product
Thanks! It does work. I'm new with Mathematica and still trying to figure out many things... Could you tell me if there a way also to have both the equation obtained and the graph in the same image?
