CND == "Condition" : This condition on x,y and z shows a particular
region on the surface that verify the equation(s) in this field. The example in
K3DSurf is : "(x^2 + y^2 > 0.05) & ( x+y+z > 1)".
The first part "(x^2 + y^2 > 0.05)" is the definition of a region in space
delimited by a cylinder which has the equation (x^2 + y^2 = 0.05).
The second part " x+y+z > 1" is the definition of a region in space delimited
by a plan which has the equation (x+y+z = 1).
One of the interesting feature of K3DSurf is the support of isosurfaces, so
maybe one day it'll be able to draw conditions eqautions along with the object
:)...but right now, you have to use your imagination to fully understand the
signification of each equation (like I said before, a lot of work still
ahead).
K3DSurf is specialised for surface and not in curves (even if it can draw them
in 3D space) so you can't use it to retreive some infos on special points,
sorry. The curve drawn with K3DSurf are in 3D space, but you can do some drawing
in 2D (still K3DSurf is not intended for that). Example :
go to "Iso" page, in the field "F(x,y,z,t) = " write "z".
Go no to the field "CND = " write "y  sin(2*pi*x/8) > 0"
The result is a cure with equation "y = sin(2*pi*x/8)" in the plan which is
defined with the equation "z = 0".
To resum, K3DSurf is difficult for initiation of drawing curves (because it's
done in 3D space).
