Hyperbolic parabaloid

Aklego also made this hyperbolic parabaloid. This is a saddle shaped three dimensional surface defined by the equation (z/c)=(y2/b2)-(x2/a2). This is an example of a double ruled surface. That is, each point on the surface is the intersection of two straight lines that are on the surface.
