SliceDensityPlot3D

SliceDensityPlot3D[f,surf,{x,xmin,xmax},{y,ymin,ymax},{z,zmin,zmax}]

generates a density plot of f over the slice surface surf as a function of x, y, and z.

SliceDensityPlot3D[f,surf,{x,y,z}reg]

restricts the surface to be within region reg.

SliceDensityPlot3D[f,{surf1,surf2,},]

generates density plots over several slices.
